MUBI's take

Made during Brazil’s military dictatorship, Bruno Barreto’s magic realist feature is sensual and darkly comedic, propelling Sônia Braga from soap star to national deity. For a deep dive into the film’s legacy, this liberating tale of female desire is explored in episode 3 of the MUBI Podcast.
