1. On Latineuro.com 2,500 Brazilian women (mainly girls) offer themselves. ToWestern men, because these days Brasileiras are no longer only interested in their own countrymen. Most Brazilian men are a little too free with their hands, have too little education and above all: no future. In addition, the natural equilibrium between the
    sexes in Brazil is out of balance: there are too few men for too any women. So modern Brazilian women have taken to the net, offering themselves in the hope of finding True Love online. The very short biographies do not beat about the bush: "Age and appearance not important. Love is for the soul", a girl of 19 comments with a photo above this description showing her on a bed in a see-through baby doll outfit, on all fours, her attractive brown posterior pointing at the camera - even digital Brazil remains Brazilian.

    Meu Amor Virtual shows four of these 2,500 Brazilian women in their lives and shows the motivation that drives them: the desire for true love; the hope for improvement of their living conditions in a distant and strange country; adventure, or brief material satisfaction. The camera sets out to investigate the background to this phenomenon. Meu Amor Virtual shows how women are flexible, creative, intelligent and often humorous as they cope with a life dominated by economic insecurity and often also poverty. This is not a matter of the success or failure of intercultural love nor of the
    motives that make the men respond to digital advances of the women. Meu Amor Virtual is about the way in which Brazilian women experience the battle of the sexes in their country, the way they look at life and the future and try to make improvements.

    Meu Amor Virtual pulls back the digital blanket and shows the dreams, desires, hopes and fears of women who set out looking for intercontinental, intercultural and true love.
