Critic Reviews for The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (35) | Rotten (1)

  • It's rare to find a film of such bottomless depths.

    January 9, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Quietly illustrates the eternal conundrum of trying to be good without being a do-gooder, and trying to be independent while also recognizing the need for a helping hand.

    December 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Subtle and involving.

    November 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Filmed almost entirely in real time, and using a series of long, intimate takes, "The Body Remembers" is about privilege and its lack, motherhood and its absence, race and its legacy.

    November 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Establishes an immediate, urgent language all its own to confront the problem of domestic abuse, making the issue personal for both the characters and their audience.

  • Don't let its florid, mouthful of a title mislead you: "The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open" is a film that's as urgent and unpretentious as it is remarkable.
