Sambolico (from: Erotic Tales)
An episode for the 12 part TV series. A renowned Finnish conductor is shown Rio’s nightlife by a beautiful carioca and they end up making love (albeit in a dream sequence) on the beach in an obvious reference to Fred Zinneman’s "From Here to Eternity“. The soundtrack is also a kind of tour of Brazilian music.
Cast: Kari Väänänen, Andrea Bloom, Antonio Calloni, Anselmo Vasconcelos
