In a poor, dusty corner of Northeastern Brazil, pregnant Darlene says good-bye to her aged mother, her dusty settlement town, and sets off to be married. The wedding doesn't happen; she returns home years later with a son, in time to bury her mother. Darlene isn't especially young or gorgeous, but she is radiant with a full-bodied, earthy eroticism that proves irresistible to first one, then two, and finally three men. If Darlene needs all three to make one complete husband, well, they believe she has enough love to go around. The film weds the humor and magic of a folk tale to a very modern feel for the psychological dynamics between men and women, and for the subtle politics of male rivalry in a macho culture
Eagles, donkeys and butterflies : an anthropological study of Brazil's "animal game" by Roberto da Matta ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roberto DaMatta, one of Brazil's foremost anthropologists, and Elena Soarez approach the question of gambling in popular culture in general and its treatment in social anthropology in particular. They focus on the "animal game", a kind of popular Brazilian gambling entertainment or lottery in which locals bet on a list of twenty-five animals. The authors argues that the success of this game, which originated in 1882 with the founding of the first zoo in Rio de Janeiro, and the social release the game provides are significant aspects of Brazilian social history and identity."--BOOK JACKET

"Darlene, une femme courageuse et intuitive, revient dans son village natal, à Russas, situé dans une région reculée du Nordeste au Brésil, avec un bébé venu d'on ne sait où. Elle avait fui sa campagne pour un mariage qui n'a pas eu lieu. Le vieil Osias lui propose de l'épouser. Démunie et seule, elle accepte. Darlene s'occupe de tout, travaille à la plantation, laissant son époux à son oisiveté maladive. Lorsque ce dernier recueille son cousin, Zezinho, Darlene succombe au charme de ce nouveau venu et tombe enceinte. Elle accumule alors les maris sous le toit familial avec l'arrivée du jeune et beau Ciro. Chacun finit par s'accommoder de l'embarrassante mais pittoresque situation : les époux successifs apprennent à faire le deuil de leur machisme."--[allocine.conm].
