Product Description

Dare to know Mandrake (Marcos Palmeira), an exciting detective series that follows the life of Paulo Mandrake, the alluring and attractive criminal lawyer from Rio de Janeiro. Specializing in resolving cases of blackmail and extortion, Mandrake is the primary liaison between the lower class of Rio de Janeiro and high society. When Mandrake is not in a bar to seduce a woman, or around the city chasing an enemy, we can find him in the law firm with Wexler (Luis Carlos Miele), a cynic philosopher, and lawyer of 70 years, whom Mandrake regards as a father figure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice TV show and bad transfer Oct. 12 2011
By Flavio Pinto - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
MANDRAKE is a TV show produced by HBO in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, based on character created by Rubem Fonseca. 13 episodes were produced. The show has violence, nudity, drugs.

This DVD set, released by Maya ent. is a big disappointment. The video quality is really awful and looks like a unprofessional rip from a VHS or a 240p video at youtube. The original aspect ratio is widescreen, but the video is letterboxed, which means the image has black bars above and below it, just to fit a fullscreen TV. If you have a Widescreen TV, the image will suffer some distortion due to the stretching.

Concerning the audio and subtitles, the DVD offers the following options:
- Audio 5.1 portuguese and 2.0 spanish.
- Subtitles in spanish and english.

The show deserves 4 stars, however the video quality is just 1 star - considering the bad transfer and the unprofessional authoring.

There are no featurettes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Brazilian drama from 2005 Jan. 22 2012
By Mikey - Published on Amazon.com
Mandrake is a drama series consisting of 13 episodes each around 45 minutes in length. Mandrake is a lawyer in Rio de Janeiro although in most situations he acts really as a negotiator for his clients. There's alot of sex, violence, nudity and drugs in this programme so it may not suit all tastes.
I had never seen a Brazilian TV series before with English subtitles so this was a first for me. It certainly isn't perfect but it is certainly a good effort. The language spoken is Brazilian Portuguese and all episodes have English subtitles as an option.
Lots of shots of downtown Rio, and the stunning Copacabana and Ipanema beaches makes you want to jump on a plane and head straight there!
Produced in association with HBO, it's worth a try and for around GBP12 or less is certainly worth the spend.
If Mandrake can't get you out of a fix in Rio, then nobody can!
With the Olympics in 2016 and World Cup in 2014, I hope to be able to find some more Brazilian drama similar to this one.
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brazilian "Carioca" novel Feb. 17 2013
By DanielSilva - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Mandrake is a very nice novel that describes a criminal lawyer's 'extra official' works. The character is a romatic description of the "Malandro Carioca" way of life. Beautiful women and the gorgeous scenarios of the Rio de Janeiro city make this series very sexy and attractive!

I hope the third season comes out soon, really love this show.

It's filmed in 35 mm, noir style, and Brasil has great films.

Highly recommend it.
