Critic Consensus: A well-mounted production is undermined by a muddled, absurd storyline of questionable taste.
Anna is a young widow who is finally getting on with her life after the death of her husband, Sean. Now engaged to be married, Anna meets a ten-year-old boy who tells her he is Sean reincarnated. Though his story is both unsettling and absurd, Anna can't get the boy out of her mind. And much to the concern of her fiancée, her increased contact with him leads her to question the choices she has made in her life.

Critic Reviews for Birth
Ten years after premiering at the Venice Film Festival in 2004, Jonathan Glazer's Birth remains as powerfully mysterious as ever.
What begins as a promising and provocative melodrama gradually turns into na conventional and frustrating movie, aimless and pretentious.
