Rio Sex Comedy

A FILM BY Jonathan Nossiter

Nossiter does succeed in stripping away cliches about the city by manipulating certain stereotypes, making for a saucy novelty
-Peter Debruge, Variety


Charting the misadventures of expatriates in Rio and their bungled search for both personal pleasure and social justice, the film is a deliriously insolent romp that explores the bizarre contradictions that are a fact of daily life in this pulsing metropolis. A plastic surgeon arrives in Rio, the new US ambassador to Brazil slips his guards and disappears into Rio's infamous favelas, and a French couple arrive to make a film.
