Storyline

Symbolic film from the Underground Movement of Brazilian Cinema (Cinema Marginal) about a woman, three men and some apes. In the director's own words: "a fable where realism and logic have no place, and in which sex is a translation of all the tortures, circumstances and violent actions." Written by fabreu

Senseless Crap
27 May 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

A journalist, Jorge (Paulo César Pereio), who is obsessed to have sex with Luiza (Joanna Fomm), ends mad and repairing chairs in the slums. Meanwhile, a primitive man, Gamal, inverts position and becomes socialized and also obsessed for Luiza.

This movie, produced by the Brazilian "Boca do Lixo" ("Garbage Mouth"), seems to have no screenplay. Probably the director was having an acid trip, common in the 70's, while shooting this garbage, so senseless it is. There is no development of the characters or weird situations. There are only four lines: "- Jorge."; "- Luiza."; "- Está todo mundo louco (twice)" (meaning – Everybody is crazy.); and "- Sai p'ra lá, crioulo." (meaning – "Move, Negro."). The annoying soundtrack, indeed a sharp cacophony, completes this irritating crap. My vote is one (since IMDb does not offer zero).

Title (Brazil): "Gamal, O Delírio do Sexo" ("Gamal, the Delirium of Sex")
