Good Manners

Film Review: Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras) at BFI Flare

It’s fairly easy to say that you’ve never seen a film quite like Good Manners. This Brazilian odyssey mixes elements of comedy, fantasy, horror and dark drama to tell a story that continually subverts expectations. It’s also made with a resonant sense of emotional depth that gets under the skin, so the story and characters become more involving as the movie gets increasingly bizarre.
