Critic Reviews for Breathing

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (2)

  • Much is asked of non-professional actor Thomas Schubert and it is ultimately his performance that raises the film to the level of the sublime.

    July 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A film of unreconciled impulses, Breathing is by turns vaguely sentimental and cooly detached in a manner that's ultimately more off-putting than it is complementary.

    September 4, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Elegant cinematography by Martin Gschlacht, one of Austria's most sought-after lensers, gives "Breathing" added depth.

    August 31, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Breathing" stands as a sure-handed look at an individual's slow journey toward realization.

    August 30, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Markovics shows a keen attention to performers that you'd expect from a thespian-turned-director.

    August 28, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not exactly life-affirming, but Schubert's performance is so eloquent and Markovics's direction so sure that the film blazes with an extraordinary power.

Audience Reviews for Breathing

  • Aug 22, 2013
    Excellent debut feature, reminiscente of the Dardenne Brothers.
    William H Super Reviewer
  • Mar 19, 2012
    With an excellent direction by Karl Markovics (who also wrote the script and starred in The Counterfeiters), this is a moving drama that follows a nuanced and well-constructed character played impressively well by the so far unknown but very talented Thomas Schubert.
