No consensus yet.
With a great performance by Deborah Secco, despite her character not being really well delineated, this solid film works very well until halfway through, when from then on it suddenly decides to be an overcoming story that sounds artificial and terribly moralizing.
Brazilian drama film based on the 2005 drama book O Doce Veneno do Escorpião (en: The Scorpion's Sweet Poison) by Raquel Pacheco. The film stars Deborah Secco, Cássio Gabus Mendes and Drica Moraes, was directed by Marcus Baldini, and produced by Roberto Berliner and Rodrigo Letier for Imagem Filmes.Raquel is a girl, adopted by an upper middle class family, who rebelled at 17 and left her family and studies at a traditional college in São Paulo to become a call girl. Shortly after starting work, she decided to write a blog about her experiences. Since some clients thought she looked like a surfer she adopted the name "Surfistinha", which means "little surfer girl". This blog became a sensation, and quickly became one of the most popular blogs in Brazil. Becoming famous, her life changed significantly. She went on to be interviewed on Brazilian talk shows similar to Oprah and David Letterman, all the while continuing her blog about her racy exploits. She wrote a book about these experiences "O Doce Veneno Do Escorpião".Despite the good cinematography and music, this is an umpleasant movie with a rough subject, almost an apology of prostitution.
