Storyline

Carlos and Solange, childhood sweethearts, marry after a chaste courtship. On their wedding night, Solange refuses to make love to him. First he pleads, then in anger he rapes her. She says she adores him, but, even after months of marriage, can't endure his touch. To prove to herself she's not frigid, she begins a daily routine of seducing strangers on public busses; she also takes Carlos's best friend to a motel. Carlos figures out that she's unfaithful and, armed, confronts Solange. Meanwhile, she seeks psychiatric help because she feels no remorse. Will there be violence and death, a psychological breakthrough, or more bus rides? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Erotic and Amoral Brazilian Classic Movie
25 July 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After being raised together since they were children, Solange (Sonia Braga) and Carlos (Nuno Leal Maia) get married in a traditional wedding. In the wedding night, the virgin Solange refuses to make love and is raped by her husband. Trying to prove to herself that she is not frigid, every day Solange gets a bus and has sex with strangers, with Carlos's best friend, with her father-in-law, but not with her beloved husband.

"A Dama do Lotação" is a story of Brazilian writer Nelson Rodrigues that became an erotic and amoral Brazilian classic movie. The writer Nelson Rodrigues had a very amoral view of the Church, the family and the mankind. In his view, all the families are or become rotten; the middle class is very decadent and false; all the women are bitch and like to be spanked; mankind and church are corrupt and hypocrite. Therefore, " A Dama do Lotação" presents many elements of the universe of Nelson Rodrigues. Sonia Braga is in the splendor of her beauty and sexuality, immediately after the successful "Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos", and is very hot in the sex scenes. Last but not the least, the wonderful song of Caetano Veloso completes this great movie. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Dama do Lotação" ("The Lady of the Bus")

Note: On 04 June 2011, I saw this film again.
