Tony Dayoub

Ambiguous, but as Roger Ebert points out, BIRTH leans toward the possibility that the boy is speaking the truth. How else would he know the exact spot where the heroine's husband fell dead?

Fascinating piece on a highly underrated film.


Odd, I thought I remembered that at the end of the movie it turned out the boy had found a box of letters or something that the wife had buried or thrown away in a park or something, and he had learned everything from those. I guess not, huh.
