Description: The uncommonly sexy, clever and ambitious slave Xica Da Silva won her independence and much more in mid-19th-century Brazil by using her feminine wiles and her lovemaking prowess to induce the Portuguese town governor to grant her freedom. In so doing, she became a legend and an inspiration to Brazil's large population of slaves and (eventually) ex-slaves. This film tells her story.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
