January 26, 2021
Barring its manipulative structure, the film's performances and its spiritual commentary on grief deserve recognition.
January 19, 2021
Sincere, open and moving. [Full review in Spanish]
January 19, 2021
Vanessa Kirby delivers a striking performance in this intense and devastating drama.
January 18, 2021
It's very rare that a single performance carries a film quite this much.
January 18, 2021
Profoundly moving and often upsetting, though it does take some odd turns towards the end. Kirby is exceptional.
January 17, 2021
Striking, compelling and terrifically acted drama.
January 16, 2021
Kirby's award-worthy performance will leave perennial contenders in the dust, while Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó elevates "Pieces of a Woman" to more than just a performance film.
January 16, 2021
This art of concealment is also reflected in the film's choice of tragedy. Grief is an emotional vacuum - a consequence of the mind unable to process the suddenness of life ceasing to exist more than the absolution of death itself.
January 16, 2021
Kirby is magnificent in a tough, stark role, and when Martha finally wrests some tiny bit of control from her life in the final moments, it's a huge triumph.
January 16, 2021
A dreadful movie that wants to come off as more relevant than it is.
January 16, 2021
Director Kornél Mundruczó doesn't go easy on his actors or on us, making this an ordeal.
January 15, 2021
Pieces of a Woman isn't meant to be an entertaining Netflix sit down. It's a hard watch, but one that's ultimately engaging given the impactful performances from Vanessa Kirby and Ellen Burstyn.
January 15, 2021
Its effortful grandiosity transforms it into something hollow and even, at times, risible.
January 15, 2021
Pieces of A Woman is remarkable - it's either the final great film of 2020 or the first masterwork of 2021.
January 15, 2021
If you are looking to have your heartbroken and put back together, this is the piece for you. Powerhouse acting on display.
January 15, 2021
The goodwill that came from an admittedly impressively-filmed opening kept fading further away.
January 14, 2021
Pieces of a Woman is a rather blunted depiction of an endlessly complex subject that deserves much more contemplation. Despite impressive performances, it fails to truly hit that mark.
January 14, 2021
There's so much that's excellent in [it] that the missteps are all the more regrettable.
January 14, 2021
Pieces of a great film don't necessarily make a great film.
January 14, 2021
[Pieces of a Woman] digs its fingers into your soul, unrelentingly showing the difficulties, overt and subtle alike, that come with dealing with loss.
