Dramatic Story Where Selma Egrei Shines
claudio_carvalho2 July 2011
The middle-class housewife Natália (Selma Egrei) and her husband Guido Rossi (Luiz Carlos de Moraes) have been married for three years unsuccessfully trying to have a baby. Their best friends are Flora (Jussara Freire) and Guido's partner Jorge (Paulo Figueiredo) that have three children. Guido refuses to be submitted to clinical examination while Natália secretly submits and finds that she is healthy. Natália loves Guido but feels that their marriage is near to the end. When Natália travels to Poços de Caldas with Flora to rest for a couple of days, she meets the student Gustavo (Ewerton de Castro) and decides to have one night stand with him to get pregnant and save her marriage. Seven months later, Gustavo finds Natália and blackmails her, forcing the future mother to take an ultimate decision.

"Adultério por Amor" is the dramatic story of a woman that decides to commit adultery to get pregnant and save her marriage with her beloved husband. Selma Egrei is one of the most beautiful Brazilian actresses ever and proves that she can perform dramatic roles and shines with a magnificent performance. The director and writer Geraldo Vietri has a stunning work and the sex scenes are not cheap or pure exploitation but part of the plot. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Adultério por Amor" ("Adultery for Love")
