Colossal Youth (Juventude Em Marcha) Reviews

Justin Chang
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Far-reaching study of poverty, loneliness and hope amid suffering is weighed down by its soporific structure, deliberately indolent pacing and endlessly attenuated conversations among a clutch of ill-defined personalities.

Colossal Youth (Juventude em Marcha), has some arresting images and an interesting central character but its lack of narrative pace will exhaust the patience of most audiences.

Fernando F. Croce
Slant Magazine

A unique metaphysical vision that, tracing its characters' dislocation, seems to weave between alternate worlds as easily as it navigates from image to image.

Movie Metropolis

Colossal Youth can best be described as a revelation... Costa abandons even the pretense of pseudo-documentary, instead transforming the quotidian into mythology.

Beautifully photographed, the elliptical, often mysterious and wholly beguiling film Colossal Youth looks and sounds as if it were made on another planet.

| Original Score: 4.5/5

Cole Smithey

[VIDEO ESSAY] How human beings learn from history in the face of unending injustice, or retain their dignity when everything is taken from them, are just a couple of the titanic issues Pedro Costa grapples with.

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.

It's aesthetically pleasing, but lacks entertainment value.

It's impossible to describe as anything less than reverie.

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.

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.

Pedro Costa's chronicle of poverty and loneliness is tough and demanding to watch but ultimately rewarding.
