  • francisca bacon's rating of the film Womb

    even foster kids develop filial feelings toward their foster parents. now, this guy was carried in the womb of a woman, presumably his mother and the first thing he thinks of when he finds out the woman is not his mother is to fuck her. how close to reality is such a hypothesis? i think it's light years away. crooked.

  • Didar Merve's rating of the film Womb

    Disturbing sound effects and ambient music that triggle the pressure and tension between Rebecca and Tommy, spectacular picture, mesmerizing atmosphere and the isolated log cabin in seaside which somehow reminds me Bergman's Hour of the Wolf house... In spite of all these beauties and charming Eva Green, the weakness of the script makes me very sad. Womb might have been one of my favorites.

  • spiderliliez's rating of the film Womb

    Sometimes you come across these dark films that you can't really categorize, and this is one of them. I might have watched this on the wrong day, but it's not exactly a mood booster. It's a fascinating plot, with some pretty disturbing scenes and ideas. Eva Green who can easily give off a sense of mystery to a character was perfect for her role. And as for the film itself, it is downright strange.

  • João R's rating of the film Womb

    Delicate tale of lost love that floats as a sad poem: cold, slow, almost silent & idylic. Structural & visually, is a pure dream. I loved how we didn't need many dialogs to feel each scene. Amazing cast. But I wish I could love this more than I do. My biggest concern is that they only portrayed a physycally passion & left behind the soulful love that would make me drown in this beautiful & emotional story easily.

  • liesbet vanessche's rating of the film Womb

    I really loved this movie. I expected something really different, but it was really good. So twisted and at the same time sweet. I get Rebecca's sorrow for Tommy, but it was so weird. When the movie ended, I watched the beginning again to see if Rebecca had short hair or long hair. The beginning made so much sense now. The movie has been going through my mind ever since I've seen it. amazing scenery!

  • Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Womb

    A quiet, very European science fiction drama-art movie that manage to be both very unique and extremely risky with it's subject matter as it raises some important fascinating questions about clone ethics and possible incestuous behavior. Eva Green is as always highly watchable in a role that few women would dare tackle and the movie is directed in a way that it feels honest and realistic.

  • Tadzio Bonaparte's rating of the film Womb

    I had never seen a movie start SO WELL and simply destroy itself in the second half. My three stars are the average of 5 worthy stars for the beginning and hardly 1 star for the end.

  • nargs_au's rating of the film Womb

    Directing was done in a way where scenes would go for longer than normal with no dialogue afterwards which really added time to reflect on what was happening, even tho it was a slow film cause of this, I was drawn into it wondering what was happening next. Story is also unique, overall it's a great film.
