Comments: There is full nudity and sexual scenes. Things do get violent and gross fast.
The film is subtitled. They speak in Portuguese.
Otavio and Gilda are a married couple with a love of violence, gore, and eating. These two do argue a lot as well.
The story well there is not really one. The people hangout have dinner and Otavio and Gilda even kill and eat their employees. The security guards and caretakers are portrayed as real people.
This movie drags on and on with not much of anything happening.
Gilda learns a secret about Otavia’s boss. This secret really should make no difference. But for some reason, their boss thinks it does.
So Otavio and Gilda make plans for their boss Borges it’s them or him.
This movie does end up taking a decidedly different turn as you near the end. It will catch you off guard.
Otavio and Gilda are great characters, they both have unique personalities with a weird macabre side. Gilda is beautiful both dressed and undressed. She is the only female featured in this movie. There is a limited cast of characters. The strangeness of the movie makes it watchable even when it drags on.
“the goriest films in years” well it is not even close. There is a little gore and I do mean little.
Gilda is beautiful and cute and evil in this film and she is the best part. Her acting is well enough and her looks make her stand out.
