Heaven doesn't exactly reign on high, but it does make for a soul-searching experience.
| Original Score: 3/5
'Pocas ideas interesantes, un final pseudo místico que no corresponde al tono general del filme y que deja una sensación de inconformidad que hace pensar más de una vez si vale la pena ir a la taquilla y reclamar el precio del boleto.'
| Original Score: 2/4
Director Tykwer proves once again that he knows how to mesmerize audiences.
| Original Score: 3/4
There's much to admire about Twyker's movie, even if it runs out of gas once it hits the road.
| Original Score: B-
Seems to have less to do with lived moral dilemmas than with the smug piety of its makers.
A gorgeously strange movie, Heaven is deeply concerned with morality, but it refuses to spell things out for viewers.
Heaven has some good as well as disturbing moments, but isn't the cinematic nirvana that the title otherwise suggests.
| Original Score: 5.5/10
The ambiguous note on which Heaven ends would be irritating in a conventional film, but here it seems curiously fitting.
For audiences not bored by allegory, Heaven is worth the wait
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Another love story in 2002's remarkable procession of sweeping pictures that have reinvigorated the romance genre.
A daunting task -- to realize the work of a dead master -- well done.
On the surface, it's a lovers-on-the-run crime flick, but it has a lot in common with Piesiewicz's and Kieslowski's earlier work, films like The Double Life of Veronique.
Blanchett's performance transcends cultural barriers, and makes the film well worth seeing.
There's the plot, and a maddeningly insistent and repetitive piano score that made me want to scream.
Never lets go your emotions, taking them to surprising highs, sorrowful lows and hidden impulsive niches...gorgeous, passionate, and at times uncommonly moving.
the film doesn't sustain its initial promise with a jarring, new-agey tone creeping into the second half
| Original Score: B-
Directing a Kieslowski script is like directing a Kubrick script--you have to be Spielberg to even try, and you're still likely to fail.
The mixture of high artistry, visual poetry and depth of meaning makes for an endlessly fascinating and compelling film.
| Original Score: A-
While we'll never really know what Kieslowski might have made of this ... we can be reasonably certain even he would be moved by what this unlikely young German filmmaker has made of it.
| Original Score: 4/5
The story remains so minimal that, ultimately, it just isn't there.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
