      Audience Member One of best films from Brazil that I have ever seen so far. The characters portrayed in the film and the landscape of Matto Grosso do Sul/Boliva/Argentine Andes are fascinating. The two leads did excellent jobs, especially Mariana Loureiro who played Carmo, so is Fele Martínez who played Marco. There are some really funny scenes, particularly with Seu Jorge's cameo appearance. The soundtracks are also excellent. I enjoyed this little gem from Brazil tremendously. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Unsuccessful road movie. Fele Martinez is stubborn on enlisting in low quality movies. Bad script trying to imitate to the Hollywood movies. The best is the fantastic photo and landscapes of South America. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun independent-genre road movie that caused some stir at Sundance Film Festival, recently. The story takes us deep into South America. I guess it is a mixture of a hit-and-run flick in the "Bonny and Clyde" style and also has a lot in common with the "Y Tu Mama Tambien" film atmosphere - I guess it borrows a lot from the latter. Definitely worth checking out. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jesse Cataldo Slant Magazine In the end, Carmo, Hit the Road suffers from an inability to decide what it wants to present. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 18, 2010 Full Review Mike Hale New York Times It's not a memorable ride, but there's enough rueful humor, tropical sensuality and borrowed style along the way to make it pleasant. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 15, 2010 Full Review Eric Hynes Time Out Pasta's maximalist approach repels any emotional investment, even as Loureiro and Martnez make for an appealing screen couple among the appalling settings. Rated: 2/5 Oct 13, 2010 Full Review Prairie Miller Critics' Choice Movies Euro-Brazilian director Pasta casts a contemptuous eye on the exotic masses around him, characterizing the underclass as duplicitous and depraved, and mentally challenged at best. Forget about how it all ended up that way. Poverty porn, Brazilian style. Oct 15, 2010 Full Review Cole Smithey "Carmo, Hit the Road" is the work of an inexperienced filmmaker nearly capable of making a competent film, something "Carmo, Hit the Road" is not. Rated: C- Oct 13, 2010 Full Review Harvey S. Karten Compuserve Not the people the Brazilian Tourist Board wants us to see, and perhaps not the people you would not want to spend time with either. Rated: C+ Sep 21, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
