Critic Reviews for Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3) unnerving werewolf tale that explores themes of motherhood and otherness, sometimes suggesting a retelling of Frankenstein. But with a werewolf. Yet for all the blood and gore, this is a quiet, gentle story...

October 10, 2017 | Full Review…

"Good Manners" is an ambitious work not only in scope but design, influenced by Jacques Tourneur's psychological horror noirs.

August 16, 2017 | Full Review…

A hybrid of art-house and genre cinema, combining sharp social commentary with grand guignol fantasy.

August 9, 2017 | Full Review…

"Good Manners" is a strange and wondrous fable. A Brazilian fantasy and stinging social commentary, it features motherhood, lesbian passions, and werewolf instincts, plus a few musical numbers thrown in for good measure.

July 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Those sick of the apprehensive nature of modern "elevated horror" movies will find some relief here, as well-known werewolf traits are treated respectfully and without irony.

June 12, 2018 | Full Review…

What's most impressive is how [the filmmakers] generate nervous laughter even when something truly horrific is happening.

Audience Reviews for Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras)


Even if this atypical film is quite surprising and almost perfect in the way it combines several different genres (including musical) into something akin to a naturalistic fairy tale, it is only a pity, though, that it is not really clear what the directors wanted to say with all this.
