Paradise: Love is startlingly frank if narratively underdeveloped.

It's a tribute to Tiesel's ray of humanity that this chapter underlines its subtitle while still getting its unflinching message across.

It might be the most lonesome film about a tropical vacation we've seen, and the greatest film ever made about the weird socioeconomics of tourism.

An engrossing and creative Austrian film about the yearnings of a lonely middle-aged woman seeking adventure at a vacation resort in Kenya.

It often seems more intent on spelling out its awareness of the politics involved than in lingering on the aching human engaged in the libidinal transactions.

A sad story about the difficulty individuals face when trying to establish relationships across vast cultural and economic gulfs.

Thematically, this chronicle of sex trade tourism is similar to Laurent Cantet's Heading South, but stylistically it's different--rigorously conceived and visually impressive.

Formally rigorous, but it tosses around the same few ideas about mutual exploitation, racism, and sex for two hours without getting anywhere deeper or more revealing.

Fearlessly acted by Margarete Tiesel, Love makes its often cruel points about colonialism and exploitation quickly and effectively, then bangs them home at repetitive length.

Paradise: Love flits nimbly between humour and sadness, and treats potentially ponderous themes such as sex, race and the rancid legacy of colonialism with a welcome light touch.

Grotesque and too openly provocative for its own good.

It would be fitting with Seidl's apparent project if Paradise (Love) was, in some sense, a documentary of its own making. But that doesn't make its facile ironies about still-pervasive, post-colonial exploitation and dehumanization any more enlightening

At 120 minutes, the director perhaps luxuriates in our discomfort a little too long, but it's still a relief to be on our side of the screen.

Ultimately, Paradise: Love seems interested only in making you wince, not in making you think.

Does the film tell us anything we didn't know already? And could anyone expect anything but the most straightforward irony in the title? The answer to both questions is no -- but there is undoubted technique, and an authorial address to the audience.

Ulrich Seidl's look at female sex tourism is compelling up to a point, and then just numbing.

Repulsive and sublimely beautiful, arguably celebratory and damning of its characters, it's hideous and masterful all at once.

Leaves the impression that no matter how striking the aesthetic, Seidl is really not telling us anything we don't know already.
