OVUM - REVIEWS


The cinematography by Dan McBride is tremendous, especially when focused on the dynamic between Calpurnia & Ellen. He takes advantage of the natural light that fills city apartments and rehearsal studios. Their warmth and energy together contrasting the winter outside.  - Rogue Cinema


Ovum will leave you fascinated—while disturbed—with its exacting survey of this at times perverse world of egg donation, and impressed with the tight artistic integrity displayed by the people behind it  - Splash Report


Quirky, queer and feminist as hell - GoMag


The performances are complemented by the cinematography, which is beautifully constructed to highlight the growing attraction between the two main characters, mainly through close–ups, and framing the two of them together. Conversely, the cinematography also works to make the ‘designer’ egg clinic seem cold and unnatural, at one point even framing Fiona (Karin Agstam) the Ovum–Coordinator’s, face in fragments, so she seems equally inhuman.  - UK Film Review
