The Latest on DVD: It Takes Two

Bruno Barreto's classic comedy Dona Flor and Her Two Husbandsfinally makes its DVD debut today in its original version. Upon its release in 1976, Dona Flor was the most successful film in Brazilian history, and earned nominations from both the Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards.

Sônia Braga stars as Flor, a woman married to a cad (José Wilker) who's good in the sack, but not much else. When he dies unexpectedly, Flor marries a kind but dull pharmacist (Mauro Mendonça) who treats her well ... except in bed. Flor's problem may be solved though when her dead (and nude) first husband begins to haunt her. If this all sounds familiar, Sally Field, James Caan, and Jeff Bridges starred in the Americanized 1982 remake Kiss Me Goodbye.
