Critic Reviews for Ema
...if there is a submerged morality at play, the 102-minute film is much more palpably a sweaty, sexy, neon-bathed scorcher...
Aggressively fierce, Di Girolamo is a showstopper, one step away from burning up the banal, gray world that surrounds her.
Di Girólamo delivers a performance that is, like the combustible fuel inside the tank strapped to her back here and there throughout the film, intense, hot, destructive - and hard to look away from.
A darkly sensual fable of motherhood and the modern family..."Ema" isn't so much a character study as it is an exercise in keeping up with an abstruse yet undeniably fascinating figure.
In an age of sanitized mainstream cinema, it's thrilling to watch a film that revels in carnal pleasures.
