Good Manners

The werewolf movie comes alive again in this Brazilian outing that won the Special Jury Prize at Locarno and the Critics’ Award at Sitges.

" Clara (Isabél Zuaa, outstanding) is poor, black and unemployed. Against the odds, she lands a live-in nanny job in the posh São Paulo apartment of Ana (Marjorie Estiano), a pregnant white woman whose rich family have disowned her. As Ana’s delivery date approaches the women become lovers. But Ana has begun to act very strangely when the moon is full... From its meticulously-arranged opening as a drama about race, class and wealth, Good Manners twists into a scary and wonderfully idiosyncratic tale of love and lycanthropy. The spirit of 1940s RKO horrors inhabits this thoroughly modern werewolf noir." (Sydney Film Festival)

"Good Manners" is an ambitious work not only in scope but design, influenced by Jacques Tourneur's psychological horror noirs.
