Critic Reviews of "Twice Born"Los Angeles TimesJanuary 02, 2014
It's debatable whether the best love stories are also the "weirdest," as Emile Hirsch's character declares in "Twice Born." But they do require chemistry, the missing piece in his pairing with Penélope Cruz.TheWrapDecember 06, 2013
Sergio Castellitto's film projects a tumultuous love story against the backdrop of the Bosnian War for independence, and then seems unaware that the foreground overshadows it in the worst possible way.New York PostDecember 06, 2013
"Twice Born" chokes to death on its own melodrama.Richard Roeper.comDecember 06, 2013
A magnificent performance from Penelope Cruz.RogerEbert.comDecember 06, 2013
Yes, it's all as clunky and tasteless as the description suggests, and the awkward casting doesn't improve this overlong drama.Detroit NewsDecember 06, 2013
One odd movie, from the casting of its leads to its backdrop to its final twist.Under the RadarAugust 20, 2014
Twice Born wants so desperately to be taken seriously that it creates an unnecessarily complex narrative, void of any chemistry-building moments for its romantic leads.Paste MagazineDecember 08, 2013
The type of cinematic slog one watches and thinks, 'This would actually be much more interesting as a book.' And that makes sense, really, since that's its original medium.Slant MagazineDecember 06, 2013
Sergio Castellitto's film quickly turns out to be more interested in reveling in the secrets of its storyline than in its sentiments.MetroDecember 06, 2013
This European production is thoroughly cheesy and phony, nowhere less so than in its florid, undeliverable dialogue, which sounds like it's been translated, poorly, from various languages into English.Blu-ray.comDecember 05, 2013
Castellitto clings to the Duraflame fires within for Twice Born, a handsomely crafted but empty feature hoping to recreate Eastern European horror and soap opera intimacy.RedEyeDecember 05, 2013
When setting a love story in a war-torn environment, it's nice to actually recognize the who, what and why of the conflict.
