    It's a lot to suffer through for a film that has nothing to say, but insists on saying it anyway. Repeatedly.
  2. For all the grimness and desperation on view in Mango Yellow, the characters emerge as robust, full-dimensional people in touch with their explosive feelings.

    It's a beautifully constructed, often disturbing look at a day in the life of several down-at-the-heels denizens of Recife.

    Like characters out of 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 run in and out of each other's lives in a film as sloppy, sluttish, scruffy and vital as they are.
  5. A shallow Brazilian trifle.
