There is no doubting the heart-rending impact of the story. But because it is made clear from the start that there is no chance of an uplifting ending, viewers may grow restless.

Earnest performances tailored to the genre's pseudo-documentary style are a plus, however the unremitting overall bleakness drags us down.

Bier has seized on the freedom and spontaneity made possible by the Dogme program, without taking onboard the movement's snooty arrogance toward the mainstream.

A startlingly real film that packs remarkable emotional power, and gives a glimpse of the kind of genuine human depth that the Dogme decree was meant to tap into.

Director Susanne Bier and co-writer Anders Thomas Jensen draw attention away from the famous Dogme gimmick... and pull us into a surprisingly powerful emotional snafu.

Entertainment Today

A movie that doesn't have much hefty probative value in the traditional American sense, yet the combination of sharp characterizations, thoughtful construction and tender performances make it something special, a movie to behold as well as feel.

the ardent, unguarded performances that drive Open Hearts...have a resonant accumulative tone of authentic poignancy that drowns out the picture's shortcomings.

Until the end, when it begins to go soft, the movie takes two strands of soap opera convention -- a life-changing accident and an adulterous affair -- and spins their suds into gold.
