Critic Reviews for Colossal Youth (Juventude Em Marcha)
If you are able to slow down to Colossal Youth's deliberate rhythms, there's a strong chance you'll be dragged in by the film's undertow and resurface completely mesmerized.
Beautifully photographed, the elliptical, often mysterious and wholly beguiling film Colossal Youth looks and sounds as if it were made on another planet.
Eventually, across the monumental boredom, mesmerizing, nearly still images and poetic rhythms of this 155-minute film, something like pathos or meaning can be sensed, if not really apprehended.
Rather than impose actors on the scene, Costa involves the people who already live there. Instead of training them to perform a story, he locates a skeletal narrative from a rehearsal process based on their personal stories.
It's a challenging 155 minutes, but it's a film that you can easily drift too and from while retaining a clear sense of place, person and purpose.
