The sweet sadness of it rises through the banter like a mist. It's something to take home with you.
March 19, 2009
Declan Reck has made a character-driven drama that plays with stereotpyical elements of marriage movies like infidelity and ennui but makes them feel completely genuine.

To say it is bleak is an understatement. But it will make a lot of people reassess their marriages and decide that, in comparison, they're not so bad after all.

Eden is a sad, nicely observed study of a decade-old marriage that, for the most part, is over.

Walsh and Kelly are the embodiment of domestic despair, fumbling to find their way back into the light.

This portrait of an imploding marriage is remarkable for every reason that counts in a good film.
November 14, 2008
An Irish indie that is well-observed and well-acted -- but ultimately, not much more exciting than the love lives of its lead characters.

November 14, 2008
Adapting a play by Eugene O'Brien, director Declan Recks has made a remarkably interior movie anchored by two heartbreakingly real, lived-in performances.

Eden is a picture so modest and minor-key that the emotional bruise it leaves may take days to develop.

The kind of small movie that's all too easy to overlook, but even easier to like once you've seen it.

It's a tired conceit, but Kelly does a fine turn as an emotionally stunted lad, while Walsh dazzles, expertly conveying humiliation and resolve.

Eden lacks the technique to give its stifled domestic-erotic feelings their full power. Yet Kelly and Walsh, who has a shy sensuality that pokes out of her toothy homely beauty, are emotionally eloquent.

like channeling Mike Leigh or John Cassavetes in bringing this marital drama to the screen.

November 5, 2008
The acting alone makes this picture well worth seeing.
May 7, 2008
Eden is almost achingly personal, and it's a testament to the small-but-powerful Irish film industry that tiny little personal stories like this one get funding.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Although its low-key realism is admirable, Eden doesn't really work.

As drama, it's a chore.
