Audience Member Un drame intimiste sur un sujet encore tabou : la depression post-partum ou comment une mere en arrive a ne rien a eprouver pour son enfant dans une societe qui sacralise la maternite. Peu de mots, peu d'action, tout se joue dans les regards et les gestes de cette femme depassee par les evenements et dans ceux d'un entourage qui ne la comprends pas. Si on passe outre la secheresse de la mise en scene, le plus grand merite de "L'etranger en moi" est sans doute de ne porter aucun jugement, ni sur celle qui vit ce drame interieur ni sur ceux qui ne le vivent pas et essayent, avec plus ou moins d'abnegation, d'en assumer les consequences. On pourra juger a bon droit telle ou telle reaction injuste ou egoiste mais jamais le film ne donne l'impression d'aiguiller le spectateur vers l'un ou l'autre pret-a -penser moral rassurant. "L'etranger en moi" est une oeuvre intrigante, parfois dure mais qui a le merite d'offrir un point de vue de franc-tireur sur une situation qui fait encore l'objet d'une omerta publique. A deconseiller aux parturientes. Ou peut-etre pas apres tout... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Depressing, irritating, real. 4 out of 5. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member O ESTRANHO EM MIM (Das Fremde in mir, Dir: Emily Atef, 2008) Um drama alemão que aborda a depressão pós-parto e todas as consequências e preconceitos que o tema carrega. Uma direção simples e segura, um roteiro que não apela ao melodrama, atuações precisas. Um filme sensível que trata sobre um tema difícil. Recomendo. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member showing real life, everyday problems after having frist baby.. but I'm really disappointed with 2nd part of the movie which is simply boring... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Filmfestivalen 2009. Stark, otroligt bra. Jag är överväldigad. Det bästa jag sett på mycket länge. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprisingly accessible film about a very sensitive subject. Told in a matter of fact style, it goes through all the stages. Wolff is excellent, still this is an ensemble piece. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
