Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands
Director: Bruno Barreto
Cast: Sônia Braga
Distributor: Film Movement
Based on the novel by Jorge Amado, this Brazilian comedy follows the strange events that befall Doa Flor (Sonia Braga) after she is left a widow by the death of her wild, irresponsible husband.
It's a slight work, slackly directed, that gets a needed boost from Braga's endearing performance and Chico Buarque's intoxicating score. -Elliott Stein, Village Voice
