Critic Reviews for Gabriela
Whenever the film wanders away from Gabriela, it seems to dawdle aimlessly before finding her again.
There is no real chemistry between the bar owner and his wonderful lover, [so] even the most dedicated filmgoer is eventually reduced to waiting for what we used to call the good parts.
Number one item on the agenda, however, is the camera's on-going perusal of the Braga bod. Mastroianni as Gabriela's main man lends an air of consequence to the proceedings.
The film's focus should have been on the way the unswervingly chauvinistic Mastroianni is forced to compromise his principles to save his marriage. But such is Barreto's fixation with Braga's body that the tone is almost risibly soft-core.
A soft-core porn film that tries to hide its carnality under the cover of Amado's book.
The expected fireworks between Braga and Mastroianni, who usually can say more with a wink than most actors can say with a whole script, never happen.
Audience Reviews for Gabriela
Based on Jorge Amado's novel, Gabriela it's a erotic drama by Bruno Barreto with terrific actings by Marcello Mastroianni and Sonia Braga. A chronicle about costum, society, sex and love. Gabriela have the bold of present nudity and sex scenes, showing the beauty in human body and love between the characters of Gabriela and Nacib. Fresh.
