Critic Reviews for Lower City (Cidade Baixa)
Everything feels obvious and by-the-numbers, as if director and co-writer Sérgio Machado was constrained by archetypes and narrative tradition.
With a distinct lack of action, Machado resorts to far too many close-ups of his stars until, as good-looking as they are, you tire of looking at them.
A steamy love triangle that may earn our attention primarily on prurient interest, but ends up being honestly involving.
No excerpt available.
Strong performances by the three leads ... help to make up for the story's sliver of a plot.
Audience Reviews for Lower City (Cidade Baixa)
(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Interesting and with a good cast.
A great foreign film. Alice Braga has a great performance in this film. Just a great story about two best friends and the prostitute that both are in love, and will do anything to have her.
Alice Braga is naked in every other scene and she has sex with a hot black guy. Does it matter that the movie is only so so?
