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.

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

Good Manners is a lyrical fable on how we treat others, how we raise good children, and how the world too often turns against us.
October 19, 2017
It's one of those films that needs to be seen to be believed. Dealing with desire and death, growing pains and inequality, Good Manners is truly unique and surprisingly touching come the finale.

Pulling off an ambitious mash-up of genres like "Good Manners" is no easy feat - that Dutra and Rojas pull it off so successfully suggests we'll be hearing a lot more from them down the road.

...an 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 8, 2017
Genre defying and genuinely unexpected, this intriguing urban fairytale takes the mythology of the werewolf story and uses it as a prism through which to view contemporary Brazilian society.

"Good Manners" is an ambitious work not only in scope but design, influenced by Jacques Tourneur's psychological horror noirs.
August 9, 2017
A hybrid of art-house and genre cinema, combining sharp social commentary with grand guignol fantasy.
