Movie Info

Beloved fitness influencer Sylwia seemingly has it made: hundreds of thousands of social media followers, endorsement deals, photo spreads in magazines. But as she starts to share more and more online, the rising pressure from concerned sponsors and increasingly obsessive fans forces her to confront her deepest insecurities and the exhaustive demands of her lifestyle.

Critic Reviews for Sweat

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (46) | Rotten (1)

  • Really well-done, a propulsive and neon feeling to it, well worth checking out and I'd love to see it in cinemas.

    June 30, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The gap between difficult reality and filtered social media fantasy is ruthlessly exposed in this ingenious character portrait from Swedish film-maker Magnus von Horn.

    June 28, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Sweat" can at times feel like one of those star-sanctioned documentaries that unwittingly capture more than the subject may have intended to reveal.

    June 28, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film is not a straightforward send-up; it shows compassion for Sylwia and her search for self-definition - for her loneliness and her labour, its drudgery and its physical strain.

  • It's really great portrait that adds a bit of empathy to social media users.

  • Sharp, perceptive, and ultimately ruthless when it comes to life under the yoke of social media. It's also smart enough never to regress into shallow, misogynistic finger-pointing.

  • While von Horn's film is a wee bit thin and unfocused in what it really wants to convey, this is definitely a deeply unsettling and realistic portrayal of a life that is completely inhibited by being online.

    August 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's got its finger firmly on the pulse of something that few other fictive films to date have captured quite so well.
