    Kids Say The Most Precocious Things: The Short (But Not Short Enough) Film.

  3. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    The very bad thing? It's too short.

  4. Onbestendig's rating of the film The Book of Mary

  5. Nicolas Amendola's rating of the film The Book of Mary

  6. ginobartolomi's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    What an enchanting little girl. I somehow felt that Mary embodied every important breath the cinema has ever taken, dancing around in that blue sweater of hers.

  7. Ma-rewind's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    L'échec est une bénédiction.

  8. Ludovic72's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    Cette histoire de séparation souffre d'un intellectualisme trop forcé, en particulier dans ses dialogues pesants. Il aurait mieux valu - comme Godard - s'éloigner de tout réalisme à ce niveau-là. Les acteurs retiennent davantage l'attention, surtout la jeune Rebecca Hampton (à présent étiquetée "Plus Belle La Vie"...), dont les monologues et la danse endiablée sur du Mahler dénotent une vraie précocité et du talent.

  9. Superfrog's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    Feels like pretentious and sad family super 8s. Disappointing. The egg scene dialogue is tedious but the shot is great.

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film The Book of Mary

  11. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    This is a beautiful and thoughtful piece whose intellectualism does not detract from the sensitive depiction of a human drama. Rebecca Hampton gives an exquisite performance as a precocious and sensitive young girl reacting to her parents' separation, while Miéville's text is replete with symbolism and philosophy, ripe for repeated analysis. It's a real achievement that it can be enjoyed at so many different levels.

  12. mubianer's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    I never really like short films to be honest.

  13. waywardwaters's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    Miéville propagates somatic themes of the material as sperm/eye, mouth, ear, body and ovum manifest into image, speech, song, music and dance. Young Marie vouches for control over circumstance through her own creative modes of expression as whimsical “Für Elise” weds “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” in unification to the parents’ separation, incising the oval egg open in fertility to the mosaic fugue of Godard…

  14. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film The Book of Mary

    Need a second chance. (but, i have like 200 films to Watch, lol)

  15. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Book of Mary

    Along with Hail Mary, this is a unique vision and interesting interpretation of the biblical tale!
