Clara's Ghost

Critics Consensus

As idiosyncratic as it is ambitious, Clara's Ghost can be as difficult to pin down as a spectral presence -- yet it also has a way of working itself under the skin.

Over time... visual slackness proves to be a sinuous strength. It prevents the film from indicating its intentions, which would remove the mystery from the tense relationships it depicts.

A twisted, slippery little whisper of a thing that refuses to let itself be easily defined.

Throughout Clara's Ghost you can't help but think that you're watching a quaint home video that would appeal to the members of the subject family only.

Unfortunately, like most home movies, it's of precious little interest to non-relatives.
