Movie Info

1828 in the German port city of Bremen: Two very different women collide in an age that has no place for either of them. One strives for a career in law, at a time when women aren't even admitted to universities. The other has lived life outside the law and may now have to pay the tab. One of them needs to get her head together – while the other would do anything not to lose hers.

Critic Reviews for Effigy: Poison and the City

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (2)

  • Beautifully designed and wonderfully acted, Effigy is a gorgeously crafted film about two women who refused to be victims of their time.

    January 5, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Effigy: Poison and the City takes a dignified, old-fashioned approach to homicidal insanity that befits its early-19th century setting.

    December 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Wordy and stilted (it was derived from a stage play), this low-budget debut nevertheless benefits from a mesmerizing central performance by Suzan Anbeh...

    December 17, 2020 | Full Review…
  • If this were a TV pilot, I'd be curious to tune in and see Cato's long-term arcs. As things stand, the most interesting aspect of Effigy is the case itself. Which one could simply read about.

    April 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • ...may frustrate those looking for cheap thrills, but it's a stimulating and rare outing into a period of history that's rarely examined...

    February 17, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "Effigy" is an interesting film, but ultimately the idea for the story is better than the movie they actually made.
