Critic Reviews for In Bloom
Directors Nana Ekvtimshvili and Simon Gross adopt the long, contemplative takes of the new wave; much of the film feels familiar, but the location shooting and period details are nicely drawn, a result of Ekvtimshvili's autobiographical script.
The viewer becomes keenly aware that she is only getting part of the story. But when the truth is so troubling, sometimes part of the story is more than enough.
As arthouse coming-of-age films go, this is brilliant -- smart and sensitive with a screw-you feminist streak.
Despite the seeming inevitability of tragedy and despair, "In Bloom" remains true to its title.
The world painted by directors Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon GroB is almost relentlessly grim, and even the giggles of two schoolgirls get drowned.
The film accurately reflects the girls' numbness, but it is devoid of sustaining emotional impact. Eka and Natia's full pain is oddly remote.
