Critic Reviews for True Mothers (Asa ga kuru)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • Kawase ties everything together beautifully in the end, even if the strands coming out of the movie's core get a little gnarled along the way.

  • True Mothers tries to interweave two powerful themes -- teen pregnancy and the longing for family -- but ultimately emotionally falters due to its sprawling timeline.

  • It takes its time telling us things we know already, but I admired the non-macho aesthetic of the film and the utterly committed performance from Aju Makita.

    September 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • True Mothers is one of Naomi Kawase's best films to date, a thoughtful drama about the shame associated with unconventional motherhood.

    October 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • True Mothers covers an impressive amount of narrative ground, morphing from social issue film to domestic drama, romantic melodrama, violent urban thriller and at last a quiet reflection of cathartic confrontation.

    September 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Sadly, [the film] is intermittently submerged inside other completely unnecessary dramatic ribbings. [Full review in Spanish]
