  • Two guys panting over the same babe leads to tedium, despite a near-record number of overheated sex scenes. show more

  • Machado establishes a realistically seamy environment for his erotic triangle, and there are some surprisingly tender moments amid the squalor. show more

  • From its actual and figurative scenes of cockfighting to its copious use of throbbing Brazilian music, there's little here that rises above the level of formula. But director Machado displays a sure touch in his ability to convey the sultry atmosphere of his exotic setting, and he has elicited admirably naturalistic performances from his highly attractive, youthful performers. show more
