Movie Info

The uncommonly sexy, clever and ambitious slave Xica Da Silva won her independence and much more in mid-19th-century Brazil by using her feminine wiles and her lovemaking prowess to induce the Portuguese town governor to grant her freedom. In so doing, she became a legend and an inspiration to Brazil's large population of slaves and (eventually) ex-slaves. This film tells her story. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Xica da Silva (Xica)

A funny and entertaning film, with great acting and direction by Diegues. Xica da Silva presents the story of the clever, ambitious and sexy slave Xica, the title character, in the mid-19th-century, and how she grow in the society in that time, using her body. A good Brazilian film that satirize the prejudice and custom of the time. Fresh.
