TV MINI-SERIES BRAZIL Magnifica 70






TV SERIES Magnifica 70 [poster]



Directed by Cláudio Torres, Magnífica 70 portrays the era of trash mouth – “Boca do Lixo”, a neighborhood in São Paulo where the movie studios made trash movies filled with sexual content (known as “pornochanchadas”), in the 1970s and 1980s, during the height of the Brazilian military dictatorship.



Marco Aurélio Morsch is a professor of business management at FAAP and Universidade Mackenzie in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He was also movie critic contributor to “Correio do Povo” in the 1980´s.


You’ll know within seconds if this is for you. If you’ve been enjoying the Scandi noirs and others from Channel 4 you will not be disappointed. Not even finished Blue Eyes? Elin will be there next week, relax.

Don’t read a thing about Magnifica 70. Just the quote above. Get stuck in. All 13, 45 min. episodes are available, so there’s no waiting a week to get the next episode. You will not be disappointed. Trust me.


If you’re in the film biz, a film buff, write scripts, or just like good drama, you’ll be as happy as old Larry.
