Jonathan Glazer Estados Unidos, 2004

HKFanatic's rating of the film Birth

One of the great love stories of the 21st century. Jonathan Glazer's "Birth" isn't afraid to go to some transgressive and uncomfortable places, nor does it shy away from the humor inherent in a little boy claiming to be the reincarnation of a well-to-do Manhattanite woman's dead husband. But Harris Savides' amber-and-gold hued cinematography and Alexandre Desplat's score crucially emphasize the tragedy of it all.
