The good news is that for a change the females, however malevolent, get to use their brains rather than their bodies as problem solving implements.

A luridly baroque tale of violent revenge, this Brazilian-Italian entry relies heavily on atmospheric visuals to compensate for its lack of depth in both plotting and characterizations.

Abranches intends for a religious parable by way of Greek tragedy, but the film drowns in a morass of portentous signs and poetic symbols.

At times, the filmmaker seems unsure of his mission. He should have had Filomena for his producer.

Film Journal International

A solid 'B' movie with no meaningful dialogue, a creaky plotline and wildly evocative characters, but its crude charm is unmistakable.

Marias is all about build-up, with very little payoff.

Abranches isn't able to turn the wackiness into anything I would be able to recommend to anyone who isn't whacked out of their gourd on mind-altering substances.

Its emotional climate is too extreme to invite identification, and its characters are too single-minded in their revenge to evoke pity, terror or even much interest.

The intent was apparently a Sergio Leone-ish black comedy, but the leaden pacing, somnambulant performances and incessant symbolism in nearly every shot will soon have you thinking that The Three Marias is three too many.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The film has all the pregnant pauses, exaggerated reaction shots and melodramatic scoring of an overripe telenovela, but, unlike a good soap opera, the sisters' separate story lines are clumsily balanced.

Christian Science Monitor

This strikingly unusual movie is at once an old-fashioned melodrama, a boldly stylized spectacle, and a very grim fairy tale, acted and directed with originality and flair.

Those who long for the termite glory of 1950s B westerns might find something to like about this tightly wound, borderline absurd oddity.

Cinema em Cena

Em algumas ocasiões, um filme não precisa ter um roteiro complexo para permitir que seus espectadores possam discuti-lo a fundo. Basta, apenas, contar com um diretor talentoso.

[Abranches is] so focused on creating a strikingly mannerist visual style that he forgets to flesh out his plot and characters.

Like a schoolyard bully who's all talk and no bite, this Brazilian thriller blows a heck of a lot of hot air, but really doesn't deliver on the ***-kickings it so threatens.

The Three Marias is thoroughly 'an eye for an eye' biblical revenge drama.
