      Bilge Ebiri Spirituality & Health This is a heartfelt, respectful film, and it eventually focuses its attention-wisely-on the patients themselves, the individuals whose lives are affected most by Nise's therapies. Mar 23, 2020 Full Review Jonathan Holland Hollywood Reporter Elegantly [combines] a triumph-over-adversity yarn with a sensitive exploration of the redemptive power of artistic creation. Apr 28, 2017 Full Review Daphne Howland Village Voice Unlike in so many films, here the actors' portrayals of psychiatric patients' conditions -- and their humanity -- ring true. Apr 28, 2017 Full Review Ray Pride Newcity Classically well-shaped and captivating in its small, well-observed gestures of behavior and of color and shape which pour from her patients' subconscious. Rated: 7/10 Apr 29, 2017 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Nise - The Heart Of Madness is a brilliantly rendered slice of history which touches on numerous subjects and really does justice to the people it portrays.

      Audience Member Anchored by a strong central performance from Gloria Pires, this biopic - albeit formulaic- pays homage to a pivotal figure in the reform of psychiatric treatment in Brazil. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie! Super sad though. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/09/18 Full Review Audience Member Hieno, tositapahtumiin perustuva elokuva psykiatrista joka päättää hylätä sähköshokkihoidot sekä lobotomian ja alkaa hoitaa potilaitaan mm. taideterapian avulla. (y) (Suom. Nise -hulluuden sydämessä) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
