Movie Info

A bold, visionary work of science fiction cinema that recalls the genre in its cerebral 1960s and '70s golden age, just as it simultaneously forges new territory with its unique fusion of emotional melodrama and hallucinatory widescreen spectacle, Vanishing Waves is one of the most accomplished and distinctive European films in recent memory.

Critic Reviews for Vanishing Waves

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

There are interesting themes: about how much of the impulse to love is hidden from the conscious mind, and how much of sex is fantasy. But the impact is diminished by lifeless leads.

This Lithuanian love story from Kristina Buozyte offers a discomfiting blend of visual ecstasy and narrative sterility.

It's derivative to a fault-but a deserved midnight-movie cult following is all but assured.

Plot and character sketchiness aside, though, Vanishing Waves is incredibly absorbing, because Buozyte and Samper are smart about how sexual urges can override all reason and obligation.

Audience Reviews for Vanishing Waves

½

A scientist experimenting with technology that would allow people to enter the minds of others creates an ethical dilemma when he falls in love with his subject: a young woman trapped in a coma. Inventive visuals, strange eroticism and a confusing third act highlight this literal mind trip, an unusual and expensive-looking science fiction piece from Lithuania.
