Movie Info

An adult tale that has ample nudity and a few sexual encounters, this drama by director Ruy Guerra centers around a wealthy lothario who has never done a moment's work in his life -- and is suddenly faced with poverty. Or to be more precise, the rich father who supports him may lose all his income. Rather than getting a job, the playboy hunts up an accomplice who will help him out with a blackmail scheme. He plans on photographing his uncle's mistress in the nude, and though it works and he gets the photos, everything falls through and they opt for finding another target, the uncle's daughter. These plot angles allow for ample nude scenes on the beach and introduce both one steamy sexual encounter and one attempted rape. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Os Cafajestes (The Unscrupulous Ones)


Ruy Guerra borrows from Antonioni and the French New Wave to create this audacious and hypnotizing film that impresses with its amount of explicit nudity for the time it was made, as well as many striking shots and one of the most iconic scenes in Brazilian Cinema.
