Oh!Rebuceteio is a very curious Brazilian film. It's a Hardcore movie (has plenty of explicit sex scenes) with plot and substance, like the old hardcore movies of the 70's used to be
I suppose this kind of cinema wasn't very used anymore in the middle 80's, when this movie was done, but even so the film fits perfectly in this genre.
The plot is all about a theatrical play, called "Rebuceteio" (it's a Brazilian Portuguese word that doesn't exist in European Portuguese, but in the movie its meaning is said as "big confusion"), and its essays. The entire movie is just that. We start following, since the beginning, one main character, "Leticia", and her dream to become a Star in the Show business. We see their performances (which are the sex scenes) and the director's (Nene Garcia, played by Claudio Cunha) opinion about that. This kind of film, which has a plot based on the stage performances, was very common in the middle 80's, even in the USA. We can remember, for example, the TV series FAME
Anyway, it's a very interesting film (and I would say original too), which its main motive is sex, we cannot deny it, but has equally some cinematographic substance either. Nevertheless, its acting could have been better, since it was kind of amateurish in some crucial parts.
