Horrible...don't waste your time
Verified purchase
I don't care how good the views are in this movie; it's unwatchable. It promotes killing women. The script sucks. What a waste of talent. I'm extremely surprised that highly rated actors Harvey Keitel & Emily Mortimer agreed to participate in this drivel. And it's the worst acting from John Turturo I've ever seen. If you're interested in seeing panoramic views of Rio, like some people who reviewed this before me, no doubt there are much better travel documentaries for that.

Poetically and Visually Beautiful
Verified purchase
I think you have to know a thing or two about aesthetics and poetry to appreciate what this unpretentious movie has to offer. Each story has a moral, but the moral is not revealed to you verbally, only visually. If you are not sensitive to the movie's poetical and visual aesthetics, you will find it superficial. I loved it.

Worth it for the aerial views
Verified purchase
It's a series of vignettes, none of them especially good. The problem is that they get muddled together and it's hard to keep track of the characters. By far the best thing about this movie is the way they filmed the stunningly beautiful geography of the city. We've all seen pictures of Rio, but the aerial shots here really show how there is no city like it in the world.

DNF. Film tried too hard. Pretentious. Wannabe.
Verified purchase
It seems that the directors tried too hard to make indy shorts.

Brazilian movies are not there yet. They need to be more natural, organic without pretension.

Of course this movie uses the beach as their forte. Bad idea. Take the beach scenes off and you'll get no substance.

I was disappointed, in this movie. I thought it was going to be good, i was wrong. The story lines are boring, and seemed rushed, you will see some of the characters, in 2 scenes and that's it.

The short stories are really ludic and it is an open understanding of this beautiful city! Everything single rale fits in the city imaginary! How great full to see Vanessa Paradis singing and so many other surprising interpretations! Great movie! Enjoyable and funny!

Its Rio!
Verified purchase
Whats good about this series (different places New York, Paris, specific stories by variety of directors); each one is true to its culture. This is Rio for sure.

A movie with great promise that was unfulfilled
Verified purchase
I expected better things from this movie, esp. given where it was in the series however, it did not live up to expectations. Some dark scenes did not fit with the entire premise of the series.
