Producer-director Andrucha Waddington’s expert, comic real-life 2001 Brazilian drama is about a lusty, earthy and unmarried woman called Darlene (Regina Casé) who marries an older man, Osias (Lima Duarte).
Osias is forced to decide whether to overlook his wife’s obvious indiscretions with a number of local men when she gives birth to a succession of sons — none of whom resemble him.
It is written by Elena Soarez, shot by Breno Silviera, scored by Gilberto Gil, and co-stars Stênio Garcia, Luiz Carlos Vasconcelos and Nilda Spencer.
