A love triangle involving Cauby (Gustavo Machado), the photographer passing through a fictitious town in the Amazon; Lavínia (Camila Pitanga) a beautiful and unstable woman; and the husband, the Preacher Ernani (Zecarlos Machado) who believes that it’s possible to fix the world’s contradictions.
Lavínia, the primitive sexuality; Cauby, the hunger; Ernani, the word – three sides of a steamy passion, in the midst of nature threatened by devastation.
Steamy, sultry and unrepentantly melodramatic, the impressively executed (and bizarrely titled) new Brazilian film I'd Receive the Worst News from Your Beautiful Lips (Eu Receberia As Piores Noticias Dos Seus Lindos Labios) was one of the buzz titles of the Rio International Film Festival where it has its world premiere.
Beto Brant and Renato Ciasca bring just the right amount of steamy sexual tension to what is in essence an old-fashioned melodrama.
