Jorge Amado’s seductive 1966 novel DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS has had many adaptations, including a Broadway musical and a Mexican telenovela, but none has endured like Bruno Barreto’s (meta)physical sex comedy, which reigned as Brazil’s all-time, top-grossing movie for over three decades—and was even remade in America as Kiss Me Goodbye with Sally Field, James Caan, and Jeff Bridges.
Leading lady Sônia Braga—on screen now in the acclaimed Bacurau—became an international star via her torrid performance as Dona Flor, who can’t resist the carnal charms of her philandering ne’er-do-well husband. After he drops dead, she remarries into a more stable union but when her late spouse reappears as a spirit, the flesh is all too willing to re-engage. (1976)
