Birth

This is another one of those films with no middle ground....you'll either love it or hate it but you certainly won't forget it. Nicole Kidman plays a woman who is confronted with a young boy claiming to be the reincarnation of her dead husband and this turns into one mind-blowing psychodrama. Kidman is bloody perfect here and to see her work with Lauren Bacall is an absolute pleasure. Also special is Ted Levine in a straight role and he shows great depth in his portrayal of the father of the young boy. The ending is a serious downer and this is certainly not a feel good film but it is an amazing piece of work.
