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>

weird ripoff of "Belle du Jour"
20 December 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Neville de Almeida's movie "A Dama do Lotação" ("Lady on the Bus" in English) seems to be a ripoff of "Belle du Jour". Sônia Braga plays a woman who gets married but doesn't want to have sex with her husband, so he rapes her. She spends most of the rest of the movie picking up men and having sex with them. This woman bangs just about every man except her husband. On the one hand, the movie does a good job showing the superficiality and falsity of the lifestyle of Brazil's ruling class, but most of the movie seems as if it's lifted from "Belle du Jour".

It's not a bad movie. There's some great shots of Rio de Janeiro, but the plot just creates a sense of deja vu. However, I will say that if you've ever wondered what Sônia Braga REALLY looks like, then this is definitely a movie that you'll want to see.
