Neville de Almeida's movie "A Dama do Lotação" ("Lady on the Bus" in English) seems to be a ripoff of "Belle du Jour". Sônia Braga plays a woman who gets married but doesn't want to have sex with her husband, so he rapes her. She spends most of the rest of the movie picking up men and having sex with them. This woman bangs just about every man except her husband. On the one hand, the movie does a good job showing the superficiality and falsity of the lifestyle of Brazil's ruling class, but most of the movie seems as if it's lifted from "Belle du Jour".
