Bruna Surfistinha

In english called Confessions of a Brazilian Callgirl, though it literally means Bruna Little Surfer Girl, is a 2011 Brazilian movie now available on Netflix.

Based on the book by an ex-sexworker and blogger, Bruna Surfistinha, this 16+ movie (it contains soft erotica) hits some hard targets.


Raquel is a girl, adopted by an upper-middle-class family, who rebelled at 17 and left her family and studies at a traditional college in São Paulo to become a prostitute, and later call girl. Shortly after starting work, she decided to write a blog about her experiences. Since some clients thought she looked like a surfer she adopted the name "Surfistinha", which means "little surfer girl". This blog became a sensation, and quickly became one of the most popular blogs in Brazil. Becoming famous, her life changed significantly. She went on to be interviewed on Brazilian talk shows similar to Oprah and David Letterman, all the while continuing her blog about her racy exploits.

What I liked about it

* I read the book years ago, and new of the whole "behind the film" tale, and i was rather glad it followed the story more or less without going into the world of gratuit nudity.
* It's great to watch movies once in a while not coming out of Hollywood's mainstream scene.

What I didn`t like about it

* Well, nothing really, it had great performances and a strong story

A nice film to "watch something else" once in a while, and recommended for some hard life lessons...
