Bruno Barreto was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1955. He grew up amidst the Brazilian film industry seeing as how his father and mother were two prominent film makers, namely Luis Carlos and Luci Barreto. At the age of 11 (1966) he made a 16mm film. At the age of 17 (1972) he made his first long film, "Tati, The Girl", based on a text by Anibal Machado, is Brazil's official entry at the 1973 Moscow Film Festival, and was only 22 when he scored an international hit with "Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands" (1977), a comedy of sexual manners starring Sonia Braga as a woman who entertains the affections of her deceased playboy husband, as well as those of her ho-hum living spouse. Adapted from the novel by Jorge Amado, it paired him for the first time with screenwriter Leopoldo Serran, with whom he would also co-write "Amor Bandido".
