Movie Reviews

A Heartwarming fantasy about love and life! Beautiful!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dona Flor is the film version of internationlly acclaimed Brazilian author, Jorge Amado's masterpiece! It is a beautiful story of a Bahian woman and her first husband who is arrogant and abusive but at the same time passionate and sexy. He dies. Her second husband is a good provider and loves her but lacks the passion and charm of the 1st husband. When the first husband's spirit comes back to Dona Flor she soon realizes that she can have everything she ever wanted. It is a beautiful story and Sonia Braga's performance is brilliant as usual! The cinematography shows great views of the fasinating city of Salvador. Well worth watching! E um dos melhores fimles do Brasil!!!! E uma maravilha!"
A compelling movie that grasps your attention.

"A wonderful movie from beginning to end. Don't let the subtitles keep you from watching such a brilliant movie.
Sonia Braga is a wonderful Brazilian actress, once again displaying her sensual side in this movie about a loving wife torn between her gigolo husband and a loving devoted husband.
I never get tired of watching this classic.
And if you haven't read the book. you must!"
Sultry and sexy Sonia Braga reigns supreme in "Dona Flor"
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Dona Flor & Her Two Husbands" gives a wonderful and often charming glimpse into one woman's life--and affairs of the heart--in 1940's Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. If you're an aficionado of all things Brazilian, you'll love "Dona Flor," from the Bahian Carnaval to moqueca to candomble (NOT voodoo) to a great shot of the Pelorinho at the film's close. Not for the sensually inhibited, "Dona Flor" is highly entertaining."

"I first rented this movie in the 1980s from Blockbuster. It was so different, such a surprising delight, I watched it again about 10 years later. Different from anything I saw before or since.

I would like to see this on DVD, then I would purchase a copy. I discovered Sonia Braga in this movie. She was demure, then glowing with repressed eroticism, very sexy and then naked with her two husbands. Definitely not for those who cannot deal with open expressions of multidimensions of the sensual - music, samba, touch, dance, food, color, pastels, alleys, crooked walls etcetera.

Someone said it is amateurish etcetera. Definitely not 21st century production values, but it is a work of art."
