Bingo: The King of the Mornings (15)

Biography, Comedy, Drama

Based on a true story, "Bingo" is a film about the man behind the mask.

The critical consensus

Brazilian drama made and performed with vigour but whose sympathetic skew leaves a sour taste.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 11/12/2017

[The lead] performance holds together a film that otherwise would have risked turning smug and sanctimonious.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 13/12/2017

A true story of sex, sleaze and celebrity, it has a freewheeling and unfaltering energy.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 15/12/2017

Daniel Rezende’s version of the life of Brazil’s Bozo takes the myth for granted and is guilty of some lazy screenwriting tricks.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 14/12/2017

Brazil’s entry for this year’s Oscars has little new to say about the perils and pitfalls of stardom, but the talent behind and in front of the camera give the clichés a fresh coat of grease paint.
