Ellen E Jones Guardian This satisfyingly strange film really has it all. Rated: 4/5 Jul 16, 2020 Full Review Scott Marks San Diego Reader The filmmakers have a grand habit of stealing from others and making it their own. Rated: 3/5 Sep 7, 2018 Full Review Alexandra Heller-Nicholas A moving and unexpected love story, a werewolf film with inescapable political bite, and - perhaps most of all - one of the most vivid, memorable and original treatments of the trials, challenges and joys of motherhood itself. Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Shawn Glinis Vague Visages Good Manners isn’t without its share of redeeming factors, to be sure, but Dutra and Rojas are simply hamstrung by their chosen medium, which pits an overabundance of ideas to a constricting runtime. Dec 13, 2023 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills If you adjust your expectations (and patience) accordingly, this is an intriguing tale that's a well-acted, unpredictable mix of genre content and social commentary. Oct 15, 2020 Full Review Adam Mock Film Inquiry All and all, Good Manners is a flawed narrative with a good heart and powerful message at its core. Good, not great, though the effort put forth by the creatives shows. Aug 6, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Icaro C Amazingly well written and the acting is quite serviceble, even with the young actors. Definetly a breath of fresh air in the current horror landscape. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A lesbian and proto-feminist reformulation of the wolf stories that shines for its admirable stylistic construction, and for its maternal and loving look at a story that, otherwise, would have been a faithful servant of the horror genre and that, instead, is presented like a sweet, well-acted film about resistance and the unexpected bonds that are born from inexorable circumstances. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member PODRE! PODRE! PODRE! HORRÍVEL! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A bizarre blend of romance, horror and musical that surpasses its wacko premise to deliver a surprisingly interesting - albeit disjointed - experience. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review dave d This movie is bat$hip crazy and thus very hard to describe without spoiling. However this musical/comedy/drama/horror/thriller.... you get the idea comes out of the blender and isn't bad. It works and despite some overstretched scenes never takes itself serious. The acting may make you cringe, but overall this is really well made and fun. That 2-hour plus run time may be intimidating, but it's never predictable. Final Score: 7.1/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review nefasto r I am not sure the running time is entirely justify, but the film is sweet even in its dark moments, and this fairy tale of present days, is a bit romantic and a bit "tale from the crypt-y". It also illustrate the difficulties of adoption. :D Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
