It was too creepy because I couldn┤t get past that he was a kid and she was a grown woman, but what annoyed me the most was her relationship with her fiancee. The scene when she goes to apologize and he sits there like a king and she gets on her knees and kisses his hand was too much male stupidity for me.

The story is about a widow meets a young boy who claims to be her husband reincarnated. This movie has a scene in it with the young boy and the grown women, and both of them kissed and that is just to sickly.

This wonderfully unique film is one of the most underrated movies I've ever seen! Though the plot is strange, the director is able to make it all seem believable. Both Nicole Kidman and Cameron Bright should have won awards for their unusual roles. I admire the director's courage to include the few awkward moments which make this story all the more powerful. The cinematography and the musical score are also beautifully done. I give this movie 4 stars. I can't think of one flaw. Unless you are too squeamish, give it a chance; you won't be disappointed.

I just couldn't get into it. It's murky, poorly-written, and, above all, too creepy for me.

A very provocative thriller with an incredible twist in the adapted way it told its story. Nicole Kidman is wonderful in this very emotional and incredibly shocking story, told through the eyes of a young boy who sincerely believes he is the reincarnated man that was previously Nicole Kidman's husband. An angelic look at the birth of belief and even more so a poignant exploration of our understanding and misunderstandings of love, constitution, and power of belief.

Birth is a haunting masterpiece, a movie which provokes real emotions and asks many questions. Stunningly shot and directed with acting of the highest calibre, this is a film which will not sit well with some critics. Difficult to pigeon hole and highly ambivalent, Birth invokes a feeling of awkwardness and disbelief at times all the time tugging at the heartstrings. A brilliant, challenging and moving story which flirts with obsession, madness and love yet never takes the easy route, leaving the viewer open to intense emotional feelings.
