The brazilian cinema has a period known by its erotic and even hardcore movies. Unfortunately, most of that production was intended merely to satisfy commercial demands for sex on screen – but this isn’t the case of The Woman Who Invented the Love, a film that definitely is the masterpiece of all erotic movies from Boca do Lixo period, since the sex perfomances aren’t the central interest: genre issues, madness, tragedy, giallo feelings and many other things are also in the film.
Doralice is a simple minded woman romantically fascinated by marriage. However, when she is raped by a butcher, a friend advises her to become a prostitute – and she does it. After that, all her wishes and longings will curl up into a fascinating vortex.
