Critic Reviews for Bye Bye Brasil
Audience Reviews for Bye Bye Brasil
It may seem like it lacks a stronger conclusion, but this deceptively simple road movie benefits from some fine performances and uses a lot of humor to address social matters that couldn't be brought up so directly at the time it was made - the military dictatorship in Brazil.
This is actually such a bizarre and one of a kind experience that I honestly can't say it's bad. This has some accidentally amazing qualities. The aftershock of American pop culture seeping through the soundtrack is extremely goofy and cheesy, but it totally made me love watching it. Visually it's great and the characters are really kooky and memorable. I think the fact that it was made during a time of political and social change makes it extremely interesting. It's by no means perfect, but definitely worth seeing.
