excellent romanticized homage to the happy poor of Bahia
24 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

from the samba theme through the tale of love lost and found this old movie presents a wonderful - though romaticized - view of everyday life among the Bahian poor. Shown frequently in the US during the 1970's on double bill with Black Orpheus (both subtitled)and known as "Bahia", it is well worth seeing . . . if you can find it. No VHS available, no TV showings - has this film been lost? Does anyone know where a VHS copy can be found? And who sang the theme song ("O Bahia, o Bahia . . .")?
