A devastating film

Before watching We Need to Talk About Kevin, I had a vague idea about its story, but I didn't expect to find the fascinating narrative style employed by director Lynne Ramsay to tell this story about a family whose apparent normality hides deep and dangerous veins of dysfunction which conclude on a tragedy. In We Need to Talk About Kevin, even the most prosaic scenes take a big emotional weight once we finish to put together the pieces of the dramatic puzzle co-screenwriters Ramsay and Rory Kinnear had been giving to us little by little. In that aspect, I think We Need to Talk About Kevin is an excellent film, even though it's definitely not the kind of experience which brings us simple entertainment, but a sensation of pain and surprise which is very difficult to forget.

I generally distrust of those movies that offer us a whimsical structure which jumps forward and backward in time, but in the case of We Need to Talk About Kevin, the style powerfully contributes to the substance, building the story on a casual way until we are overwhelmed by the magnitude of what we are witnessing. Besides, the title of this film becomes cunningly ironic when we consider the fact that We Need to Talk About Kevin has few dialogs, and its most intense scenes are mute but full of meaning with just looks, expressions and body language. It's unfortunately not very common to see a film like this one, in which every scene brings a new angle to the story, and there isn't a single element which has been ignored as part of the global narrative. Something which definitely includes the soundtrack, composed by songs which deeply contrast with the images which accompany them, creating a visceral answer; while other ones work as ironic accents which perfectly establish the melancholic tone from the film.

And I now have to mention Tilda Swinton, who brings the best performance of her career so far in We Need to Talk About Kevin (something which is already a big compliment). This is the kind of performance which genuinely captures the spectator, because on some way, she transmits her character's emotional turbulence with her apparently impassive face and calm attitude. The other actors also bring excellent performances (Jasper Newell particularly), but Swinton is the one who definitely carries with the whole film. In conclusion, We Need to Talk About Kevin definitely deserves an enthusiastic recommendation, but I have to say once more that this isn't an easy or amusing film; in fact, it left me emotionally devastated for having portrayed a facet of the society whose existence we know even though we prefer to ignore it. In summary, a brilliant movie, even though I don't wanna watch it ever again.

Terrible to watch

This movie is terrible to watch. A very annoying child, that never reveals any answer about his heritage of evil. For me the movie has not point in watching. I really don't understand why people would want to see this movie.

Ambiguous and visually stimulating

7 1/2

"We need to talk about Kevin" is overall chilling and genuinely terrifying at times, especially after the first half of the movie. It basically shows us the genesis of a psychopath, but without really outlining the reasons behind this genesis or blaming anyone in particular : was it all his mother's fault , was it genetics', was it both? Hard to know. The greatness of this movie resides behind this doubt and a gorgeous directing.
