  • Mercifully brief but mercilessly interminable, Barefoot is guaranteed to induce much face-palming and eye-rolling as well as a sustained state of cringe. Most of its talented cast is brought low by their involvement; Evan Rachel Wood is especially demeaned by a role that is all but unplayable.

    A more generous reading of this remake of the 2005 German film would be to look upon Wood’s mentally affected Daisy Kensington as a sort of Cinderella. Daisy has been kept sheltered by a schizophrenic mother who dispensed such valuable advice as driving gets you pregnant, and encouraged her daughter’s self-esteem by saying she would never be anyone’s girlfriend. The wide-eyed and baby-voiced Daisy finds herself in a Los Angeles psychiatric ward after her mother passes.

  • Extremely beautiful movie,Casting light on the hidden side of mental illness.My research for last 5 years reveals that most of the psychiatric disorders can be cured by love and hope :).I was a patient once then i met someone who brought me back to my real live. I can’t say more than that it is an incredible movie.
