Trivia

The opening sequence caused controversy among Brazilian Catholics as it depicts Xica placed instead of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception, with puttos attempting to undress her. A new opening sequence was made when the series was rerun by SBT in 2005 featuring a new song, Jorge Ben Jor's theme which is also part of Xica (1976). See more »

Simply great!
7 May 2000 | by Pippin's DiamondSee all my reviews

The setting is interesting, the wardrobe perfect, the story compelling and the cast brilliant (though I think the director, while not bad, could certainly do better.) A specially great performance by the actress playing Violante(?) and the actor playing José María. I wish I knew their names, because they're very talented. This story has some characters that are quite complex. I read it is based on the actual life of a slave named Xica da Silva. I was amazed at finding this kind of complexity where I thought I would only find two-dimensional characters. The story is always surprising me with totally unexpected plot twists and realism. It's got humor and drama and soul, and I really like the theme song idea for each character. This is one of those things you really don't know how it's going to end. Right now I hope the end is still a long time away. I'm really going to miss it when it's gone. Kudos to everyone involved.
