Birth * Jonathan Glazer (2004)

Posted in drama and tagged on by .

Indeed it was because Glazer’s latest (“Under The Skin”) now plays in Dutch filmhouses that I noticed “Birth”. Birth is about a women who looses her husband and 10 years later a young boy says he is him. The woman (Anna) is wonderfully played by Nicole Kidman. Anna goes from disbelief and denial to doubt and eventually acceptation. Kidman seems to be the only good element of the film though. Other actors are less convincing and especially the story with its terrible conclusion is very weak.
Not a very convincing film. The unlikely basis could (should) have been worked out better.
