    Woven throughout is a deeply rewarding recognition of the sustaining power of female companionship.

    With a minimum of dialogue and backstory, the lead actresses (winners of a single special prize at Cannes 2010) movingly portray the depth of these colleagues' compassion, and their struggle to maintain a front of data-gathering objectivity. Unfolding in a remarkably organic fashion, The Lips pays plaintive tribute to the work.

    Camera stays very, very close to faces, emphasizing their humanity, and by the end of the film you feel you know something about these women.
