Storyline

Mandrake is a Rio de Janeiro criminal attorney specializing in blackmail and extortion cases, particularly ones involving high-society elites who call on him when their secret lives in the city's sordid underbelly get them in trouble.He moves effortlessly between two starkly contrasting universes: a sophisticated one of money and privilege (also of corruption and hypocrisy); and the corrupt and dishonest subculture of blackmail artists and opportunists. Mandrake works out of a small but respected practice with his 70-year-old partner named Wexler, who handles the civil cases. His late father's ex-associate, Wexler treats Mandrake like a son but also hassles him over the unorthodox methods he employs. What makes Mandrake an intuitive and shrewd investigator is the same thing that makes him irresistible to the opposite sex. Written by HBO Latin America

I love this show. Beautiful cinematography
11 July 2008 | by juliacoppSee all my reviews

I haven't enjoyed a show as much as this one for a very long time. It is beautifully shot, and many of the actors are beautiful too. It's fun to see Rio de Janeiro and be exposed to things I never would be otherwise. The main reason I'm posting is to say what should be obvious...it is dubbed in Spanish. I wish it was still in Portuguese, but the dubbing is actually pretty good. Your only chance to watch it without subtitles is on Sundays at 8, dubbed in Spanish. I hope HBO keeps giving us new episodes I love it...The shows keep getting better. The pilot I liked, but I thought it could have been so much more. Now on the 4th or 5th episode, it's awesome. It doesn't devote itself entirely to drama, suspense, action, or humor. Its a unique blend. The lens of the filmmakers is distinctively different from anything I've seen and it takes awhile to become comfortable with a disparate approach to television and leave Hollywood expectations behind. I don't understand 100% of it, but it doesn't matter to me because the show is so beautifully made. It's the only opportunity I've encountered to watch dramatic television from latinoamerica that is not a telenovela.
