Name of drama movie and an arranged marriage between a wealthy Englishman and a South American woman?

I remember seeing a bit of this movie in the late 90s about an arranged marriage between a wealthy Englishman and a South American woman (possibly because she had brown skin). I think the movie took place in the late XIX century or early XX century. I think it had supernatural or fantasy elements to it. 

I remember that the couple got married without even knowing each other or talking to each other. They were living in a tropical climate in a hut of some sorts. I think the woman didn't speak a word of English but they had sex on their wedding night, and what I can remember is the guy referred to sex as dying; and in the middle night the guy woke up his wife to have sex with her and said out loud "die!", lol. 

Does anyone remember this movie? Thanks very much.

I've never seen it, but could it be Wide Sargasso Sea
