Good-Bye Momo (2007)
Critic Reviews for Good-Bye Momo
It sounds churlish to bash a film that's as bereft of bad thoughts as a tiny puppy. But when the puppy licks your face for 108 minutes, enough's enough.
Though Momo is dedicated to 'the missing children and the children who are coming to save the world,' the most provocative question it asks is whether, with its conspicuous product placement, the film was secretly backed by Coca-Cola.
Middling Cinema Paradiso magic realism turned lifeless by abundant treacle and a literal approach to his lightly surreal material.
If Acuña weren't such a lovely, personable child, Goodbye Momo would be a hopeless mess. But this actor never strikes a false or phony note as the story's intrepid protagonist.
Little Acuna gives a sweetly unaffected performance as the beleaguered child, and his transformation from a joyless paperboy with no future to a prematurely burdened child for whom education may lead to a better life is touching.
