Another Awful and Lame "Masterpiece" of Sex and Revenge by Francisco Cavalcanti
14 May 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 1953, the boy Lauro witnesses from the wardrobe where he is hidden, his mother Teresa being raped and accidentally murdered by Ferreira.

In the present days (1983), Lauro (Francisco Cavalcanti) abducts Ferreira's daughter Miriam to revenge the death of his mother with the intention of killing Miriam. Meanwhile, a gang led by Careca abducts Lídia, the daughter of the businessman Mr. Lopes, with the intention of obtaining the payment of a large amount of ransom. However, one of the criminals rapes Lídia in a hotel room on the eighth floor of a low- budget hotel and the woman commits suicide, jumping off through the window. Lauro switches Lidia's identity by Miriam's.

Mr. Lopes raises the amount to release his daughter while Ferreira hires gangsters to seek out his daughter. The criminals chase Careca's gang by mistake believing that they have kidnapped Miriam. Meanwhile, Lauro and Miriam fall in love with each other.

"Os Tarados" is another awful and lame "masterpiece" of sex and revenge by Francisco Cavalcanti. This director, writer and actor probably believes that he is a sort of Charles Bronson, wearing a thin mustache and "acting" in the role of vigilantes. However, his films are terribly violent and ridiculous, with the most stupid situations and dialogs like, for example, the romance of Miriam and Lauro; or the reaction of the gangster when he realizes that he had committed a mistake; or the silly conclusion with Ferreira wounded on the floor and saying an absurd monologue. My vote is one (awful).

Title (Brazil): "Os Tarados" ("The Perverts")
