Critic Consensus: Beautifully filmed and powerfully acted, Ema puts a thoroughly distinctive spin on its story of emotional trauma and self-discovery.
Critic Reviews for Ema
The film is anchored by some dynamic dance sequences and a couple of quirky scenes with a flame-thrower. But I couldn't quite shake the feeling, though... that the film was afflicted with a slightly pervy sheen.
A prickly punk remix that takes a traditional art-house character study about a young woman dealing with emotional turmoil and filters it through the stylistic approaches more common to recent art-pop hybrids like "Lemonade."
Sometimes words are inadequate or miss the point entirely, the sequence seems to suggest. Maybe that's the case with Ema. Best just to experience it and submit to its strange, intoxicating rhythms.
One of the year's most dynamic and electrifying films.
We wouldn't want to live in the world Larrain shows us. But his films are so good they convince us that we do.
