Movie Info

Sophie Fiennes records Anselm Kiefer, as the 65-year-old world-renowned artist creates a spectacular architectonic landscape. "In 1993 (Kiefer) left his native Germany and settled in Barjac in France, where he bought a derelict silk factory, transforming it into an extraordinary artistic centre... at once the place where his paintings and sculptures are housed and displayed, and a colossal, evolving architectural artwork in itself. Fiennes begins by roaming through the tunnels and corridors of … More

Critic Reviews for Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (7) | DVD (1)

"Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow" is that rare art documentary - one that places the art front and center, not as an adjunct to its maker's biography.

Full Review… | January 6, 2012
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

A documentary that focuses rigorously on process and atmosphere at the expense of context and engagement.

NPR
Top Critic

Shot in widescreen CinemaScope, Fiennes' film is a mesmerizing spectacle that asserts its own pace...

Salon.com
Top Critic

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow attempts to let Kiefer's art, and the process by which it's made, speak for itself.

Full Review… | August 10, 2011
AV Club
Top Critic

Breathtaking imagery competes with a scary lack of human interest in this hypnotic, potentially alienating documentary about German sculptor Anselm Kiefer.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

A daunting work that will please movie lovers willing to invest their time and intellect.

Full Review… | August 10, 2011
New York Post
Top Critic

Despite its overall tone of cataclysm and condemnation, Kiefer's monstrous works sing more than they shriek. This is highly personal artwork writ in a grand, towering script, and all the more intellectually and artistically legible for it.

Full Review… | February 17, 2012
Austin Chronicle

It's a mesmerizing experience and a must-see for anyone interested in the artistic aspects of filmmaking, as well as those who are interested in Kiefer's work.

Full Review… | September 16, 2011
Playback:stl

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow provides a series of evocative but also elusive compositions, as well as some contemplations.

Full Review… | September 8, 2011
PopMatters

A slumberous bore.

Full Review… | August 26, 2011
Times-Picayune

It's a testament to how fascinating Kiefer's work is that the film is still enjoyable, if intermittently very dull.

Full Review… | August 17, 2011
Paste Magazine

Often boring, tedious and only fleetingly insightful.

Full Review… | August 12, 2011
NYC Movie Guru

an inviting exercise, outstaying its welcome at an exhaustive one hundred five minutes.

Full Review… | August 11, 2011
Filmcritic.com

Art tourists [get] special access [to] Kiefer channeling creative and destructive energy of boys (mankind? male artists?) in intellectual context and fantastic, adult scale.

Full Review… | August 10, 2011
Film-Forward.com

Meanders through the world-making works of landscape artist Anselm Kiefer in reverential awe and little skepticism.

Full Review… | August 9, 2011
Slant Magazine

A fascinating, offbeat portrait of a distinctive artist, this film offers very little commentary, merely observing the work as well as the creative process.

Full Review… | October 20, 2010
Shadows on the Wall

Is this a film about art, or about film as art? That's the question asked by Sophie Fiennes' ravishing, hypnotic record of the work of Anselm Kiefer.

Full Review… | October 19, 2010
Sight and Sound

It is not a film that offers a great deal of insight or explanation, just a chance to luxuriate in the world that Kiefer has created.
