Critic Reviews for Embers

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6)

A lovely meditation on identity and the difficulties of personal connection, Embers is a descendent of Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker in both tone and mise en scène.

While one wishes Carré, who shares screenplay credit with Charles Spano, might have hung those stirring visuals on more involving plotting, "Embers" nevertheless makes a strong, not to mention timely, impression.

It's metaphorical aspects like that, and the striking visuals that delineate the stark contrast between the worlds above and below ground, that make Embers memorable.

Apr 11, 2016 | Full Review…

An elegant, brooding drama with a sprawling international cast, the movie presents its haunting premise with barely any explanation, leaving viewers to steadily make sense of the chaos along with the confused protagonists.

Claire Carre's debut feature could be described as a mass-scale Memento, but that thumbnail sketch misses both the pic's impressive conceptual breadth and its numbing dramatic stasis.

Top Critic

Carré succeeds in creating a haunted mood. The mood is so strong, in fact, that it overwhelms any sense of narrative development -- the movie feels a bit like a video-art installation expanded to feature length.
