Birth

This unusual "supernatural romance" has a young bride (Nicole Kidman) devastated by the untimely death of her husband. Ten years down the line, she's slightly recovered and ready to marry a new beau (Danny Huston). Out of nowhere, a ten-year-old boy shows up, claiming to be the reincarnation of her dead husband. The implications are nutty (and possibly untrue), but are handled with class and delicacy. Not everyone will take to the slow narrative and questionable sexual implications, but the film is an admirable, elegant puzzle that should linger on in memory. 100 minutes
