Lady on the Bus (originally known as A Dama do Lotação) is a 1978 Brazilian erotic drama film directed by Neville De Almeida. It is based on a short story, of the same name, by Nelson Rodrigues.


Solange and Carlos have known each other since childhood and their marriage is arranged. On their wedding night, the inexperienced Solange resists her husband, who grows frustrated and impatient. Carlos finally forces himself on her and commits rape. Solange is traumatized and despite loving Carlos, wants nothing to do with sex. Solange tries to overcome her sexual dysfunction by having sex with strangers she picks up on buses.
