Critic Reviews for Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras)

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (14)

This satisfyingly strange film really has it all.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The filmmakers have a grand habit of stealing from others and making it their own.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A moving and unexpected love story, a werewolf film with inescapable political bite, and - perhaps most of all - one of the most vivid, memorable and original treatments of the trials, challenges and joys of motherhood itself.

August 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet while it's refreshing to see teen lycanthropy handled as something other than a metaphor for sexual awakening, Good Manners dawdles on its way to a surprisingly predictable and unearned resolution.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"Good Manners" is a haunting tale of love - and the burdens that come with it.

August 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The tone grows increasingly delicate and sweet; in fact the film ends up feeling like a fairy tale.

Audience Reviews for Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras)


Even if this atypical film is quite surprising and almost perfect in the way it combines several different genres (including musical) into something akin to a naturalistic fairy tale, it is only a pity, though, that it is not really clear what the directors wanted to say with all this.
