Rebecca:
Its over. I will always speak to you, and I don't mind if you don't say anything. Just because you went away, it doesn't mean you're not here anymore. Perhaps all I ever needed was this gift, the one you gave to me at the end.



User Review

Quiet, Cold, Stunning!

Rating: 8/10


Films with lingering shots of a beach or a face or a road to me can
sometimes come off as pretentious dribble, not the case with Womb, I
found this movie to be absolutely stunning. There's no other word for
it, some people would easily find this movie to be boring due to the
extremely slow pace and lack of dialogue, but in my opinion that all
just adds to the atmosphere that the director was trying to create.

There is no way at all to tell what year this film is set but I'm
guessing it would be in the not too distant future, let's face it, the
advances in science these days it's not too long before human cloning
will be a part of our society. A lot of things I've heard about Womb
quite often compare it to Birth, which is a pretty good comparison I
think, both films have a lot of similarities. I couldn't help but pick
up vibes from another film Never Let Me Go, the controversial subject
matter is similar, the underlying sci-fi element, the moral question
the viewer faces and the stillness of both films are very much the
same.

Eva Green is wonderful to watch, she gives such a wonderfully
restrained performance that's it's surprising she didn't get noticed
more for her role. Ever since I saw the terrific Cracks a few years ago
I look forward to seeing what edgy role she decides to take on next,
Matt Smith, who I'm not so familiar with also does a good job. The
children at the beginning of the film deserve a mention too, it seems
as though child actors are just getting better and better as time goes
on.

Certainly not a film for everyone, but for people who like a bit of a
discussion after a film it's perfect.

LOVED IT!!!
