A Classic of the "Boca do Lixo"
8 July 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The dwarf Jujuba (Dilim Costa) becomes famous and powerful after an unsuccessful attempt of suicide. He receives many letters of sympathy from children and a TV network offers him a show for children. He hires an obscure writer to write his shows with a high salary, and gives him the nickname of "Escriba" (Roberto Miranda) (obs: meaning who writes). Jujuba is an abusive and mean boss, humiliating Escriba most of the time in various situations. Jujuba invites the stripper Patty (Helena Ramos) to his wonderful house as if he were interested in hiring her with an expensive salary for his show, but actually with the only intention of having sex with her. When Patty steals the original of the fake contract, Jujuba tries to retrieve it, and Escriba has the chance of his revenge, leading to a fatal conclusion.

The erotic "Patty, A Mulher Proibida" is a classic of the "Boca do Lixo". This movie was written for Vera Fischer, the Queen of the Boca do Lixo at those years. However, Vera Fischer was interested in the offer of the incipient and prominent Brazilian television and was trying to change her image of erotic star with the support of her husband Perry Salles. Then the lead character of Patty was offered to Helena Ramos. The story shows how television was able to change the life of a man, giving power and money to those that were well-succeeded. The story is based in a short tale of Marco Rey (novel "Mustang Cor de Sangue") and tries to reach the popular classes, exposing the naked body of Helena Ramos in every opportunity. The abusive relationship of employer and employee is exaggerated, but very real. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Patty, A Mulher Proibida" ("Patty, The Forbidden Woman")
