| A good period comedy!
Based on the most well known novel of Marcos Rey, a very important Brazilian's novelist, "Memórias de um Gigolô" has a witty script, excellent characterizations and a fine direction by Pieralisi. The movie tells the story of Mariano, a young boy who is raised by a bunch of prostitutes in the beginning of the century in São Paulo and his disadventures when he grows up. A little of "David Copperfield" maybe, but in a Brazilian's way which always means originality all the way. The cast is good but Cavalcanti is not the perfect match for the leading role. Valadão is good and Ghessa is always a shining presence. Later a TV series.
