Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

Lent Day 8 Wendy Dent's "The Girls of Ipanema"

It is hard to believe that it has been a decade since Cinema Dave first covered the "Palm Beach International film Festival." Besides Fay Wray, Michael Jackson, Adrien Brody, Carol Alt and Rick McKay, Went Dent roamed the Red Carpet. Dent is a documentary film maker.

"The Girls of Ipanema" is a unique video.
The movie opens with plenty of shots of Brazilian Beauties wearing their trademark dental floss thong bikinis. The original "Girl of Ipanema" Girl, Heloísa Pinheiro, explains Brazilian sexuality and culture.

The film moves on to more serious issues, like crime in the streets and government corruption, as seen though the eyes of the four Girls of Ipanema. When it is all said and done, Ipanema Brazil will always be remembered for sambas, swaying, white sand beaches and G string bikinis.
