Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

Movie Summary

Director:
Bruno Barreto
Released:
1976
Rating:
R
Proving that bad boys are hard to shake, this fanciful Brazilian comedy follows the adventures of Dona Flor (Sonia Braga), a conventional girl who weds a handsome ne'er-do-well (José Wilker) whose only saving grace is his talent in bed. When he dies suddenly, Flor remarries -- but to his polar opposite: an exceedingly dull pharmacist (Mauro Mendonça). Soon, she finds herself longing for hubby No. 1 … and next thing you know, his ghost appears.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    TV Guide Magazine

    This entertaining and erotic picture, while perhaps not the most challenging film to come out of Brazil in the 1970s, is nevertheless enjoyable. (Review of original release)

  • 60

    Chicago Reader Dave Kehr

    A generally effective sex comedy, distinguished by its origins (Brazil) and the considerable appeal of its star, Sonia Braga. (Review of original release)

  • 50

    Variety

    Has a certain raw charm but does not quite achieve the needed cohesion and directorial finesse it calls for. (Review of original release)
