Mango Yellow (Amarelo Manga) – Amazon.com Exclusive
Guaranteed to shock even jaded viewers, Claudio Assis' debut feature is seeped in bold, sun-drenched colors. It is a provocative tale of low-rent losers set in the coastal town of Recife, Brazil. Assis' characters seemingly stem from some Carnival hell - a macho butcher and his born-again wife, a forlorn barmaid, a sinister sadist and the gay manager of a flophouse called the Hotel Texas. A cleverly interconnected script propels the action in this highly original film with its perfect confluence between style and story.
Portuguese with English subtitles.
"The movie's surreal flavor underscores its message: This is how the lower half lives in Brazil, and by extension, humanity at it most basic, getting along without the rose-colored protections that affluence affords" -New York Times
"Thoughtful and well made... A strong and original new voice in Brazilian cinema" -The Culture Vulture
"A Wildcat of a Film" -Variety

I enjoyed it because I like foreign films but I also liked the fact that I didn't pay anything to watch this one. It didn't seem to go anywhere or maybe I didn't get it. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Paul L.
With its good acting, writing, and production the movie itself warranted four stars, but Amazon's presentation of this movie on Instant Video is incredibly poor resolution. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Harvey Woodmeadow
