Trivia

The entry at The Movie Database site for the 2015 Danish documentary, Naturens Uorden (Natural Disorder), about a guy with cerebral palsy features a poster exactly like the one for Womb, right down to the body pose and the hand gestures. This is odd because Natural Disorder is a documentary and Womb is a science fiction film and they have nothing to do with each other. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rebecca: It's over. I will always speak to you. And I don't mind if you don't say anything. Just because you went away, it doesn't mean you're not here anymore. Perhaps all I ever needed was this gift.

Movie that creates a platform for debate
25 July 2011 | by uorrettSee all my reviews

This movie is not for those who are looking for action or for a fast paced movie. The movie takes you to the very beginning and takes it's time to build the relationships that will eventually be the cause for the controversial decision made by the main character. There is one scene that happens so suddenly and it is this event that brings about the controversial issue in this film. The acting is done really well by the few characters that we see, they seem immersed in the situation, filled with as much emotion as you would expect. The second half of the movie will have you debating with others and yourself on what stance you would take. And perhaps as you're watching the movie you have an idea of what the outcome will be, but the movie engages you to keep watching to see how it all plays out in this unique situation that we're presented with.
