This crazy Brazilian sex comedy follows the revealing travails of Professor Silvio Proenca, a noted Brazilian folklorist from Rio who through a series of mishaps finds himself the most notorious and hunted man in his country. His odyssey begins when the middle-aged academic's beautiful wife Marina refuses to accompany him to Sao Paulo to promote his latest book. At the airport, Proenca hears the irresistible sounds of folk music drifting down a corridor. He investigates and finds a group of old friends, including the sexy Marialva. Rainstorms cancel the flight and the friends go out for a few drinks and then more drinks at her house. Eventually, the revellers depart, leaving only Marialva and the professor who by then is totally potted. He is a man of habits, and the next morning he absently arises and goes into the apartment building hallway to get freshly delivered bread only to hear the door shut and lock behind him. Poor Proenca finds himself stranded with nothing on but a horrified look. When the neighbors see him, they chase him into the street where he is seen and hailed a pervert. Soon Proenca must not only flee from passersby, but also a SWAT team, police dogs, the press and Marialva, the only one interested in saving him. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
