It is telling that Noé, a filmmaker ordinarily enamored by the grueling underbelly of human behavior, can effectively contrast the nihilism of the climactic events with an almost hopeful tone overlaying the story's origins.

Es difícil recordar otra experiencia tan perturbadora, en la que los recursos de lenguaje colocan al espectador en un estado sensorial difícil de explicar con palabras.

Quando o filme chegou ao fim, confesso que chorei - não pelo que havia acontecido, mas sim em função do que ainda iria acontecer.

Extremely difficult to endure, and if you choose to endure it, it could leave you feeling angry and upset. Nevertheless, this is serious filmmaking, and Noe is a gifted filmmaker.

By spinning his tale in reverse order, Noe has come up with a thought-provoking drama that's more than just a gimmick.

A fascinating study in excess, a movie that seduces and repulses as it explores the merciless nature of fate.
