Kornél Mundruczó (Pieces of a Woman)

Season 1, Ep. 73

In Pieces of a Woman, Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó and writer Kata Wéber explore their own tragedy, in the hopes that it will make it easier for other couples to heal. The film stars Vanessa Kirby as a woman who suffers a terrible loss, and includes a 24-minute birth scene astonishing in both its empathy and virtuosity.

Mundruczó's explanation of whose point of view we're seeing adds another layer of emotion to a powerful, beautiful film.
