Movie Info

Charlotte is an American poet living in Berlin struggling to find recognition for her work. After discovering she is a finalist for a prestigious poetry grant, she jumps at the chance to legitimize her life, racing to complete a prize-winning poem while dealing with a complicated relationship, a rival poet, the return of an ex-lover, and a dangerous case of kleptomania. An arrest for shoplifting, constant financial woes, and a mystery surrounding a missing pair of shoes add to her already long list of self-made troubles keeping her from becoming a successful artist.

  • Blady's refreshingly concise first feature stands out from the pack with its strong performances and its incisive slant on millennial navel-gazing.

  • The devils are in the details with Softness Of Bodies. There's fine performances all around, with props once again to Dasha Nekrasova.

  • Thanks to tight control of the tone and a script committed to its barely coping characters the movie mines humor in unexpected places. However, the true reason to watch the movie is the lead actress.

  • "Softness of Bodies" works best almost as an elongated short. It's a fun character study with some interesting visual quirks and a strange, funny lead performance.

    Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A portrait of a narcissistic poet, Softness of Bodies will most likely appeal to the viewer who can identify with the 'struggling artist' existence.

    Oct 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Blady and Nekrasova refuse any temptation to hint at some heart of gold lying under Charlie's stony facade. Love her or hate her, she probably doesn't care either way, as long as you're unhappy.
