Movie Info

Director Jonathan Nossiter takes viewers on a wild trip through the slums of Rio in this sexy ensemble comedy starring Charlotte Rampling, Bill Pullman, Jean-Marc Roulot and Irène Jacob. Arriving in Rio to tour the local cosmetic surgery clinics, a respected British surgeon warns potential clients that rhinoplasty isn't the key to true happiness. Meanwhile, out on the streets, a visiting U.S. ambassador (Pullman) gives his handlers the slip, and disappears into the city's most dangerous favela. There, he befriends a free-spirited tour guide and his gorgeous partner, who open his eyes to a side of the city few tourists ever see. As the daring ambassador soaks in the sights, a French couple (Roulot and Jacob) contend with an irresponsible relative while attempting to shoot an anthropological film about the favelas. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Rio Sex Comedy

It is an excellent piece of work about Rio. There are so much sarcasm that I believe only very few Brazilians would be able to understand... Being more precise, only very few would watch to the end. Most of the less than 2% of the population out of the low income average will never understand or just pretend that the movie is as ridiculous as stupid. It is the opposite and it is for sure not for everyone. I totally recommend it if you really wanna know what Rio is about...

Disparate foreigners seek sexual fulfillment and social justice in Rio, weaving in and out of each other's lives. Bites off a bit more than it can chew as its uneven structure becomes a bit aimless. Overlong by about 30 mins. The film would have benefited from trimming the fat a bit. Still, strikes nice tonal balance between comedy and seriousness.
