Thompson on Hollywood

Ten years after premiering at the Venice Film Festival in 2004, Jonathan Glazer's Birth remains as powerfully mysterious as ever.

Parts of the story don't make sense, but Birth has a hypnotic, spellbinding quality that draws you in.

What begins as a promising and provocative melodrama gradually turns into na conventional and frustrating movie, aimless and pretentious.

Manhattan-based supernatural thriller done in the tone of "Rosemary's Baby" starts out strong but loses all steam in its third act.

Nadie debería ir a ver esta película sin estar dispuesto a sumergirse en un clima extraño, donde conviven el misterio, la sensualidad y la locura.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Birth channels the style and tone of [Buñuel classics] exceptionally well, but ultimately the dramatic resolution is unsatisfying.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Apesar de contar com sua parcela de defeitos, merece aplausos pela honestidade com que aborda sua história e pela coragem de Glazer em investir em um ritmo lento e estudado.

| Original Score: 3/5

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

"Birth" is a creepy, well-acted examination of how grief can give itself over to irrationality. It pushes its share of buttons - and then pushes a few more.

| Original Score: B+

For a certain kind of moviegoer, Birth will provide allusive ancillary thrills...

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Birth is the beigest, most suffocatingly tasteful film I've seen since Woody Allen's Another Woman.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

You want to like a movie made with the poise and precision of Birth, but the film feels only partially conceived.

John Wirt
Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Managing to be both stilted and bizarre, Birth never achieves life.

Andrew Wright
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

[Bears] all the hallmarks of a too-long-in-gestation pet project: over-planned, over-thought, and meticulously fussed-with to the point of stasis.

Film Journal International

The picture isn't scary or convincingly dramatic and is thoroughly devoid of humor or irony.
