Breath

Critics Consensus

  • Baker proves himself a talented director; he manages the rolling rhythms of his waves and his story with skill...

    August 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Baker keenly captures the beckoning magnetism of active waters, not to mention the searching souls - young and experienced - who gravitate toward its dangers.

  • In spite of his low-key ambitions, debut filmmaker Simon Baker doesn't yet have the eloquence as a director to get you on board.

    June 1, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Star Simon Baker, in a solid directing debut, blends surfing and coming-of-age elements into film of moments that don't always tie together. But when they do - oh, how they soar.

    June 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Breath is a wistful and wounded coming-of-age story about surfing, surrender, and the sordid experience of losing your virginity to a married older woman who's got a thing for erotic asphyxiation.

    May 31, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • I found Breath too long to sit through without dozing, which may be a good thing since it is a film with an inestimably slow tempo, offering numerous opportunities for naps.
