Critic Reviews for Amarelo Manga (Mango Yellow)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • For all the grimness and desperation on view in Mango Yellow, the characters emerge as robust, full-dimensional people in touch with their explosive feelings.

    November 13, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • A glib evocation of urban malaise, flirting with situations of sexual loneliness ... without mustering up a single substantive notion.

  • there is so little invested in these characters that you don't really care. unfortunately, MANGO YELLOW is just a pulpy morass - sometimes sweet, until you start chocking on the seeds

  • Assis stretches his characters up to and perhaps beyond the edge of reality. In their extremes, he suggests a malaise infecting Brazil.

Audience Reviews for Amarelo Manga (Mango Yellow)

    It is the yellow of the diseases, the purulent wounds, the rotten teeth - a nearly grotesque (and for most maybe even too hard to stomach or digest) view of Recife, Brazil and the people there living as seen through the daring and cynical lens of enfant terrible Claudio Assis.

    An interesting slice of life film depicting life in a slum in Brasil. The story covers the events of a single day. Life and death, and the desires common to all men play a part in this tight little film. One comes away with a sense that in the face of such abject poverty, the characters in this film seek love, companionship, and comfort, just as we all do. After the basic needs of life, (food, shelter, and safety) are met, then these other needs can be addressed, even when the availability of the means to achieve them are severely limited. Despair and a joie de vivre walk side by side in the barrio.
