GOOD MANNERS is a seductive werewolf fairytale. Directors Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas have created an enticing film that lures you in with a powerful combination of Brazilian culture, passionate lead performances, and surprisingly, music. Like a heady fragrance, this tale of the lonely Clara who takes a job caring for enigmatic Ana during her pregnancy, tricks you into believing you are watching a familiar werewolf story, but the film blossoms into a shockingly unique experience. GOOD MANNERS is a compassionate, intimate look at the lengths a human will go to in order to protect a werewolf, told from a female perspective. This film left me feeling stunned, exhilarated, and craving more.
GOOD MANNERS had it’s New England premiere at the Boston Underground Film Festival on March 25th.
