Rohrwacher, meanwhile, is superb as Mina, in a role that couldn't be drawn less sympathetically.
June 12, 2015
A strange, harrowing, often remarkable story of love and obsession.

Hungry Hearts is a troubled, troubling movie. The unrest it creates looms long after the end credits have rolled.

A better name for this movie would maybe be "The Ghastly Ones."
June 4, 2015
A robust thriller with a questionable, although intriguing, commentary on motherhood and mental illness.

Mr. Costanzo's attempt at rendering the fraying of minds and marital bonds draws on notions of hysteria that only shortchange his characters.

It takes Jude far too long to finally admit what Mina is doing to their child as Hungry Hearts heads toward a contrived conclusion.

You can't take your eyes off Rohrwacher as she weaves back and forth between passionate and loving and obsessive and nuts.

Beginning as an adorable romcom, "Hungry Hearts" morphs into a disturbing but not particularly illuminating story of mental illness.

Whatever else you think, you'll have to admit you have never before seen anything quite like this one.

Hungry Hearts owes much to early Polanski (especially Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby), but Costanzo prizes ambiguity over tension.

It simply collapses in a ridiculous muddle. But the performances of Driver and Rohrwacher lend some weight to the movie.
September 8, 2014
Starts off with a delightful opening but turns increasingly exasperating.
September 8, 2014
Something is missing. Something like credibility.

An audacious little indie ... Hungry Hearts starts off innocently but becomes a new kind of psychodramatic indie thriller, a Rosemary's Baby in which the mother is her own demon.
