Critic Reviews for Breathe
Breathe is a deftly observed look at teen power games and how closeness can turn to animosity in one miserable night out.
In some ways it plays like a horror movie, in other ways it's almost a documentary.
These are extraordinary performances, and considering France's way of nurturing female talent, Japy and de Laage could be at the dawn of 40-year careers. They're that good.
The entire piece is precisely woven together, from script to performance to execution, and the result is a chilling study of emotional annihilation and its aftermath.
I can tell you that Ms. Laurent's direction is astute and economical, that both of the film's young stars give fine performances, and that "Breathe" is a very good title for a film that ever so gradually takes your breath away.
