Critic Reviews for Her Name Is Sabine

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • The rage of the director can be felt in each frame and clearly shapes the pamphlet-like narrative, though the film is still a compelling examination of autism and the way the outside world tries -- and, more often, fails -- to deal with it.

Audience Reviews for Her Name Is Sabine

  • Jan 09, 2012
    Powerful and saddening documentary about a young woman who's life is decimated by mental illness and becomes more of a burden than an inspiration to family.

  • Sep 10, 2008
    A heartbreaking documentary about an Autistic woman directed by Sandrine Bonnaire, the subject of which is her own sister Sabine. The difference in Sabine before and after she had been institutionalized is dramatic. Through Sandrine's footage of her sister we see before that whilst she was still suffering with her then unknown illness, Sabine was a happy, carefree and intelligent young woman. But then as a result of five years in the institution she has become withdrawn, helpless and a shadow of her former self. Just goes to show the damage misdiagonising and lack of proper care can do. The final scene with Sabine crying 'tears of joy' will no doubt leave a lump in your throat.
