science fiction and religion in a Military and Catholic Country (1971)
This is another work by Janet Clair, the novel Brazilian Madam. It was an interesting plot that told us the Ciro Valdez (Tarcísio Meira) story. At the beginning Ciro returns to the Earth to finish his mission. He is from another planet. But his story stars when a virgin woman Orjana (Neusa Amaral) was walking through the prairies with her father Hilário (Ênio Santos) and they see a flying saucer. A strange light visited Orjana and she is pregnant. The child grew up in a small place near the sea and all his friends could see special things happening by his side. The time passes by and Ciro is a mystic medicine man. Now he has to fight against Otto Von Müller (Jardel Filho), a nazistic rich man who is Esther's husband. Esther was interpreted by Gloria Meneses and she was a journalist in the plot. Esther loves Ciro and their story was very sad. A curiosity: Tarcisio and Gloria were married in real life and for many years Brazilian people could see them working together. The story was censured by the Catholic Chuch and by the military President Medici.The author had great problems in a military decade and in a Catholic Country as Brazil. People, in 1971, could say Ciro was Jesus Christ and Orjana was Maria. The romantic pair were Tula and Leandro (Lucia Alves and Claudio Cavalcanti).
