3 things about Jonathan Glazer’s BIRTH

Birth [2004]

1. Closeup. Her glassy eyes and open mouth. She stares straight ahead, telling a story with nothing but her face. The shot holds, and holds, and holds, and holds. Suddenly his mouth darts into the frame and he whispers something in her ear. The shot holds, and holds, and holds.
2. The old woman and the boy sit next to each other on the bench in the hallway. Without looking at him she says, simply, “I never liked Sean.”
3. Like Under the Sand, the final scene takes place on a beach.
