A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da Porta) Reviews

    This film is the Brazilian version of Fatal Attraction, if not more deadly. I am sorry for the little girl but that's the consequence of messing with a woman with nothing to lose.

    This was a reasonably good movie. Usually, movies set in Rio are focused on the poor who reside in favelas. This characters in this film are all middle-class people. What started off as ho-hum took an unexpectedly dark turn. Unforgettable movie.

    Great acting, directing, photography, and editing. All built upon an uninteresting story that no one needed to tell. He's a bad man and she is driven mad.. So what?

    I appreciate that it is exceedingly grim, it doesn't take the easy way out.

    Like the beginning of a love affair this movie starts light on its toes and superficial lulling you into thinking you're just going to get a slice of life kind of Brazilian romantic comedy but looks can be deceiving. Soon enough surfaces start to crack and there's no mistake you're watching naked, raw egos in mortal combat of the highest order. Ordinary people can be spectacularly duplicitous and damaging to themselves and those in their orbit, throwing their emotionally eviscerating punches with operatic gusto. It's not over till the fat lady sings and by the time she does you're watching a horror movie ripped from real life headlines.

    Slow burn thriller takes the cheating husband drama and turns it on its head. For this to come from a debuting director is even more amazing as the meticulous craftsmanship and stellar acting seem to come from someone well wise in cinematic art.
