Erik (Hendrik Scheider) is vacationing with two German friends in an opulent beach house owned by the father of one of them. They spend their days snorkeling, lounging about, eating, watching Brazilian soaps and, when the mood strikes them (and to make a few bucks), making R-rated love in front of a live webcam. Eriks mindless days come to an end when a sexual tryst on the beach becomes violent, ending in the death of his nameless trick. While agonizing over the incident, Erik a muscular beauty meets Miguel (Aldri DAnunciaao), a fresh-faced young man and TV actor. The two fall in love but Eriks secret and intensifying guilt begins to haunt the relationship. A sensual, yet ominous drama of youth, desire, love, cross-cultural tensions and fate.

I could do without the musical interludes between the scenes. I would have added more plot with the blonde and his trick before the death scene. It would be more interesting for me if they had a stronger connection and were more involved with each ... Read More

It seems that Marty is a bitter wretched queen who just enjoys spewing negativity as a normal lifestyle, I found the film very original, exotic and the brunette in it was very sexy, it is not perfect I agree but as a first attempt it is a valiant and... Read More

It wasn't an awful movie. It just wasn't good. Weak and unrealistic plot. If you don't like rap music performed in English, you probably won't like it performed in German or Portuguese either!
