Where Middle of the World becomes more appealing is in showing life along the less-traveled roads of Brazil, a landscape of beauty and poverty, nomad lives and basic instincts in a determination to make the best of a lurid existence.
A true Brazilian story of vague human-interest value ... gets a heavy-handed treatment.
Wants to be both a realistic family drama and a mythical odyssey but lacks the substance to be much more than a vignette.
...the problem is, it's not terribly interesting.
A moving coming-of-age story that invokes memories of films such as Pixote (with significantly less violence) and The Bicycle Thief.
Although the territory it covers is familiar, this Brazilian import, based on a true story, has its heart in the right place.
Not one character seems like a fully realized human being, let alone a likeable one.
The Middle of the World is an unusual road movie that celebrates the virtues of family solidarity and the enjoyment of simple pleasures.
"The Middle of the World" has such a strong sense of adventurous spirit that is should cross into venues other than just the Spanish language market.
a warm portrait of a family linked strongly by love under arduous circumstances
Não são todos os filmes que conseguem despertar tanto interesse por seus personagens - algo que esta produção indubitavelmente faz.
A good Brazilian movie that never got a good distribution deal. It looks like it was well hated by critics and users alike. I am a fan. It is an interesting slice of Brazil outside of the bit cities and a hugely rewarding experience.
I could do without this movie. It was interesting in some parts, but overall, just not great.
