  1. Babak Geranfar's rating of the film The Second Mother

    It is magical how one can turn ordinary life into such a fascinating drama about love and the failure of the holy notion of "Family". The hat trick comes when you see how that works in the hand of a woman director. The Second Mother realizes how much we should take Brazilian Cinema serious and how we need to re-calibrate our vision of every day life according to cinema. Two Thumbs Up!

  9. Edgar Echeverría's rating of the film The Second Mother

    Las diferencias sociales que lamentablemente parecen dar identidad, usos y costumbres, los de arriba parecen acostumbrarse a verse superiores y los de abajo a verse inferiores, pero los afectos, la maternidad, el amor, no pasa por ahí, y cada clase lo vive a su manera, pero en el sentido más puro ninguno pueda escaparse; y es ahí, cuando las pequeñas mentes lo entienden y rompen esa mirada contemporánea tan formada.

  11. El Biffo's rating of the film The Second Mother

    Yet another class-consciousness film from South America about a maid. It's getting to be a genre. I really liked it, tho:-)

  15. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Second Mother

    The second mother is a welcome update to the social and class examination of La Nana. It's beautifully warm cinema that's as evocatively poetic as it is easily accessible. Performances are spot on, expertly milked for maximum audience squirm factor and a great example of how to up the stakes from scene to scene. The ending however felt too convenient and at odds with the rest of the film. 4 stars

  16. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film The Second Mother

    Modest and sweet, The Second Mother deals with important social issues with a surprisingly light touch, at the same time it creates an enticing characer portrait, aided by the work of its solid ensemble. Still, there's little risk taken in its execution, and the narrative starts to seriously falter in its second half.

  17. Felipe Gava Cardoso's rating of the film The Second Mother

    So many mistakes... From the narrative structure to the sociological stupidities. That's why Brazilian cinema is irrelevant nowadays.

  22. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Second Mother

    It's interesting that in Brazil higher education is still regarded as a force of social change and upward mobility, whereas in the Neoliberal USA, college is just another form of economic enslavement: the main product on a North American University is indebted students. It's reassuring to know that magic realism is still alive in Brazil.
