Dona Flor and her Two Husbands : the opening scene!

Standard

Here a good film portrayal of the opening Carnival from the novel “Dona Flor and her Two Husbands.”  In this scene, Vadinho–who’s dressed like a Bahian woman–collapses and dies in the street while dancing, drinking and celebrating Carnival with his friends.  The Portuguese-language film was directed by Bruno Barreto in 1976.
