An obsessive triangle
MAGNIFICA 70 is set in the infamous district known as Boca de Lixo in São Paulo in the 1970s.
Vicente, 35, lives a safe but repressed middle-class life. He works in the office of the Federal Film Censor and has a routine marriage with Isabel, daughter of a general. But when he screens a naughty film, he falls for the lead actress, Dora Dumar. His fascination with her takes him to the red light district where he begins to work with Dora and Manolo, chief producer of the Magnífica film company.
This seductive but chaotic world draws all 3 together in an obsessive triangle.
