Movie Info

Bye Bye Brazil, the gifted director Carlos Diegues' follow-up to his 1978 Xica da Silva, became one of the most popular and fiscally successful imports of late '70s and early '80s South American cinema.

Audience Reviews for Bye Bye Brasil

This is actually such a bizarre and one of a kind experience that I honestly can't say it's bad. This has some accidentally amazing qualities. The aftershock of American pop culture seeping through the soundtrack is extremely goofy and cheesy, but it totally made me love watching it. Visually it's great and the characters are really kooky and memorable. I think the fact that it was made during a time of political and social change makes it extremely interesting. It's by no means perfect, but definitely worth seeing.
