Artful and Driven
11 February 2015 | by Laura ZSee all my reviews

"Anita B" tells a tale not often told, exploring the emotional challenges of readjusting to "normal" life. The cinematography is picturesque and strangely entrancing, and gives off the impression of a moving piece of artwork. Eline Powell (Anita) is extremely convincing, honest and powerful at every turn, and tells Anita's story with remarkable drive. One of the most effective attributes of the film, however, is the likability of EVERY character. Just as in real life, there is no true villain. Each character is complex and has a point of view, leaving "Anita B" to linger in one's mind long after the viewing is over.
