Eros, O Deus Do Amor 1981

Eros, O Deus do Amor 1981

Eros, O Deus do Amor (English: Eros, the god of love) is a 1981 Brazilian erotic drama film written and directed by Walter Hugo Khouri. The film focuses on Marcelo, a wealthy but philandering businessman who recounts several women that formed his sexuality as he longs to find purpose in life.

The film stars Roberto Maya as Marcelo, Norma Bengell as Eleonora, Maria Cláudia as Ana, Dina Sfat as Miss Collins, Renée de Vielmond as Lígia, Denise Dumont as Berenice, and Christiane Torloni as the Communist leader. The film also features a large ensemble cast of supporting actresses who play Marcelo's various lovers and affairs.


The film explores Marcelo's complex and troubled relationship with women, from his childhood crush on his mother, to his adolescent initiation with his English tutor, to his adult promiscuity and dissatisfaction. The film also depicts Marcelo's alienation from his family and society, as well as his search for meaning and fulfillment in life.

The film was released on November 12, 1981 in Brazil by Embrafilme. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Khouri's direction and Maya's performance, but criticized the film's excessive eroticism and lack of depth. The film was also controversial for its explicit sex scenes and nudity, which earned it an 18+ rating in Brazil.

The film is considered one of Khouri's most personal and autobiographical works, as he based Marcelo's character on his own experiences and fantasies. The film is also part of Khouri's trilogy of films about sexuality and existentialism, along with As Filhas do Fogo (1978) and Amor Estranho Amor (1982).
