  1. Victória Célia's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    So far the best Brazilian film I've watched

  2. Juurakkotukka's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    The mood and the themes are very similar to Jesper Ganslandts amazing Farväl Falkenberg (2006). https://mubi.com/films/falkenberg-farewell

  3. DrFirestone's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    Dreamy poetry and loneliness trapped in a place where an escape seems to be the only option... It's slow paced, heavy, but this is a fine piece of film-making. It's an uneasy drift with great music that will most likely leave you thinking for a moment about what really happened there. The visual style gives it an ethereal feeling, the performances are solid. An unexpected gem, excellent cinema!

  4. woddy_1128's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    話を理解するのが難しかったですが、理解できれば納得!腑に落ちました。音楽の使い方が上手い。

  5. Irina Artenii's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

  6. Mario C.'s rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    Good movie with a thin plot but gorgeous photography. It speaks not so much (or not only) of depression or of the difficulty of being teen, but above all of the constraint of living in a place where one does not feel at ease. So escape, in various forms, is the only option.

  7. Ausencia's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    In the desolate brazilian countryside, a boy, codename "Mr. Tambourine man" spends time in internet, smoking pot and arguing with his dysfuncional mother. A non-narrative structure, it talks about depression, lonliness and how society repress the youngsters: suicide is the only way to be free. Smart (allegories) and dark, but no explanation about the incident, and I don't know if I'll wach it again, in future.

  9. milton lima's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    Pungente. Poesia em formato de roteiro. Tinha me esquecido como a adolescência é dolorosa.

  10. Shiro's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

  11. Lays Laine's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    é realmente difícil crer que iste filme possa ser bom

  12. jenifferp's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

  13. cabrapreta's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    Nice surprise. Emotional but never sappy. Beautifully shot. Evocative mood, right pacing, strong sense of time and place. Great use of nonactors: the old couple is lovely. Interesting soundtrack (and good sound, which is always nice to hear in Brazilian movies). The "lyrical" blog post voiceovers are cringeworthy, though — but this is usually true of teenage writing, so in the end they also did a good job on this.

  14. nowhere_fast's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    é tão lindo e puro que quem não tem muita emoção não entendem nada e fica reclamando.

  15. glhrm's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    Ótima história, fotografia e trilha sonora. Fácil de se identificar com a história do personagem principal.

  16. danielle garay's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

  17. Joaopa's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

    A history of smart, strong, which reveals itself slowly and the spectator in a way nothing forced, and therefore easily assimilated, The Famous and the Dead proves that there is intelligent life in Brazilian cinema. There is prejudice against films of this or that country here, but movie is good even when it goes beyond the European cinema, Asian or Brazilian. When it's just film and well done.
