There is an edgy verisimilitude to Sérgio Machado’s love-triangle drama, shot amongst the hustlers, criminals and prostitutes of Brazil’s colourful port city, Salvador. The director has a refreshingly non-judgmental approach to his wayward protagonists (lustily played by three of the country’s biggest young stars). And, such is his visceral rendering of his setting, one imagines being able to smell the blood, sweat and sex.
