A Dirty, Grimy, Charming and Refreshing film
13 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Carmo, Hit The Road is about two people who find companionship and love in the rural back country of Brazil where lawlessness, recklessness and rape run amok. The film follows these two characters on a gritty journey to escape the hell around them. Marco rescues Carmo and Carmo rescues Marco in a similar circumstance. A sexual film of much perversions and pain and yet there is hope constantly following them, a cupid of sorts in the form of Jesus and a Spiritual Boss. The film has a Pulp Fiction camp to it that works quite well...well, unless you get easily offended at the constant male intrusion of forced sex. The film grows lighter with each passing hardship as Marco and Carmo become more reliant and attracted to each other. Predictable perhaps, but the two leads carry the weight of the film magnificently. A film of perseverance and strife, of truth and pain. A Charm lying in a sea of filth. One of my favorites films as it was unexpected and directed with a well composed hand. Brilliant and effective. Not for those with a weak stomach or delicate and protected mind.
