Jonathan Glazer's sophomore directorial effort, the measured psychological drama Birth, may have failed to catch on with audiences, but it is a memorable moviegoing experience thanks in large part to the way the director's visual skills were augmented by ace cinematographer Harris Savides. The DVD release of the film offers a pristine anamorphic widescreen transfer that captures as much of their powerful collaboration as could be expected. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but those with a taste for visually rich films should find this disc worthwhile.

Birth 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

"Birth" beautifully enraptures your soul. This movie gives a taste of hope for those of us that have lost a loved one. -The hope that one's soul doesn't cease to exist after death. -The hope that possibly we get more than one chance at life... That are souls continue to grow and learn through the phases of our different lives. I find this movie intriguing and comforting. It touches on taboo. But does it so tastefully that one can't be trully offended.

I have just one criticism for this movie, so I'll get it over with first. The soundtrack (music) was just absolutely AWFUL. It was filled with all kinds of wierd electric harp music...just terrible, and it really took away from the magic of the movie. However, I guess you could say that the long periods of silence added to the power of the movie as well. Apart from that, this movie was really full of wonderful acting, and propelled by a series of stretched-out, but very powerful, scenes. One must have a great deal of patience to deal with it, but, all things considered, it really is wonderful

It reinforced my thoughts about reincarnation. A few scenes ( tastefully done ) I thought were necessity for carrying the movie through which almost reminded me of the daring scenes Kevin Bacon played in "The Woodsman". I think you have to go into this movie with an open mind and quite possibly a box of kleenex because the end ( I found at least ) is so very sad.

I am going to have to give up on anything that Nicole Kidman does. I just did not get into this movie.
