Mãe só há uma

Anna Muylaert Brazil, 2016

Henrique Amud's rating of the film Don't Call Me Son

I'm not particularly enamored with Muylaert's filmography and Mãe Só Há Uma still doesn't make me a hardcore fan of hers, but I always liked how she has no time for melodrama and this time she finally built in some good fish out ot water tension, without resorting to the easy indie film cliches (well, mostly). It really goes nowhere, it's true, but I quite enjoyed this disjointed walk we had.
