Love Strange Love / Amor Estranho Amor. 1982. DVD.

Love Strange Love / Amor Estranho Amor. 1982. DVD.
 Love Strange Love (Portuguese: Amor Estranho Amor) is a 1982 Brazilian erotic crime drama film written and directed by Walter Hugo Khouri. The film stars Vera Fischer, Tarcísio Meira and Xuxa Meneghel. Fischer won the Best Actress Award at the 15th Festival de Brasília as well as the Air France Award.
The story involves an adult man's recollection of a short period of his life in 1937. That year, on the eve of a key political change in Brazil, a 12-year-old boy is sent to live in a bordello. The bordello's owner, the favorite woman of an important politician, is also the child's mother. In those hours, he discovers his own seхuality.
Love Strange Love caused some controversy due to the participation of Xuxa in the cast. In an interview, Xuxa explained that she was between 17 and 19 years old when the film was made. In another interview Xuxa comments that the film was made in 1979. Her character has seхual relations with a boy of 12 years, interpreted by the actor Marcelo Ribeiro. As in the contract there was no release of the image for video, Xuxa, through a judicial injunction, ordered to collect all the original tapes of stores and stores of the country, nevertheless 4,000 copies were sold before the Justice to distribute its distribution, being, therefore, many pirate copies continued circulating, making of the film a true legend among people who did not know the work.
In 2014, Xuxa lost a lawsuit it filed against Google to create a filter in order to eliminate results related to the movie in its search engine. Xuxa filed an appeal against that decision but had, in 2017, the appeal denied.
The video of Love Strange Love has its marketing and distribution prohibited in Brazil. However, the film was released on DVD in the United States in 2005 and can be purchased by any Brazilian on foreign import sites. The US producer did not sell the rights to Xuxa, who filed a lawsuit in the US in 1993, but lost.
