Elegantly [combines] a triumph-over-adversity yarn with a sensitive exploration of the redemptive power of artistic creation.
Unlike in so many films, here the actors' portrayals of psychiatric patients' conditions -- and their humanity -- ring true.
It's a study of courageous innovation against an entrenched medical orthodoxy.
No less then seven screenwriters contributed to the script, which has its powerful moments but so deifies Silveira that the movie turns into a black-and-white struggle between a caring, enlightened woman and a cadre of hard-hearted, benighted men.
Classically well-shaped and captivating in its small, well-observed gestures of behavior and of color and shape which pour from her patients' subconscious.
Nise - The Heart Of Madness is a brilliantly rendered slice of history which touches on numerous subjects and really does justice to the people it portrays.
Vivid dramatization of the reforms made by Dr. Nise to save psychiatric patients in Rio from the brutality of lobotomies.
