A well-mounted production is undermined by a muddled, absurd storyline of questionable taste.

The setup of Glazer's hypnotic movie suggests a supernatural thriller, but the execution is pure European art film. Kidman gives a bold performance as a woman in extreme distress, but the script is hooey. Birth is ridiculous, and oddly unforgettable.
Unusually austere and ambiguous.
By trying to turn Birth into a thriller, the filmmakers undermine its intriguing issues.
A dismayingly skillful exercise in high-style creepiness.
I didn't find it spellbinding at all.
The picture, as a whole, never gets beyond its surface.
This is a grown-up, intelligent, beautiful film. Rejoice.
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.
What were they thinking?
Kidman has another turkey for her resume.
Manhattan-based supernatural thriller done in the tone of "Rosemary's Baby" starts out strong but loses all steam in its third act.
It bored me really and i didnt finish it, it just was slow and boring
Anna is a widow who is about to re-marry when a young boy claims to be her husband reincarnated. Some inappropriate scenes.
The premise of this mystery drama is actually rather interesting: a jogger dies, a baby is born. Ten years later that baby is confronting the jogger's widow who is about to get married again, claiming to be her dead husband. Kidman, proofing once again that she is looking good in any hairdo, gives a great performance. So does Anne Heche, whose character plays a big part in the mystery. The intentionally dismal look and hypnotic soundtrack make for an unsettling atmosphere. Sadly, the movie is falling to pieces when the solution is presented way too early and has nothing to add after that. It's merely a drama about grieve in the end, and not a really good one either.
