Critic Reviews for A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da Porta)
In his first film Coimbra already appears to be a master of the cinematic tightrope walk, weaving flashbacks and detective work in an energetic and pleasingly sleazy manner (this is, after all, a modern noir).
Though a strong director of actors, Coimbra is significantly less assured as a visual stylist.
Surprisingly extracting humor out of a incredibly serious and dramatic situation, the film is especially benefited by the flawless performances of Leal, Cortaz and Nascimento.
As a piece of storytelling, "A Wolf at the Door" may be a tawdry little shocker. But on a visceral level, it is a knife to the gut.
Potent sexual attraction can be a wonderful thing, but it can also bring out the absolute worst in the people involved, as the bleak, disturbing Latin American noir "A Wolf at the Door" convincingly demonstrates.
Audience Reviews for A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da Porta)
An engrossing film made by a filmmaker in absolute control of the story he wants to tell (it doesn't have a single shot or camera movement out of place), moving in a careful, deliberate pacing towards a shocking conclusion and with Leandra Leal in a top-notch performance.
