The film is successful in an absorbing sort of way, but underwhelming.

Tykwer's script is structured so that the audience knows more about the characters' connections than they do. As each faces a midlife crisis/turning point, fate sometimes appears to be calling the shots.

Tykwer can't seem to turn Hanna, Simon and Adam into real people. They feel like pawns in the service of a more cerebral diversion than the game of life.

It's a funny, fearless, suspenseful sex comedy that, in drawing on science and philosophy and art and death, risks accusations of pretentiousness.

Despite its fascinating and humorous moments, one can't help but be frustrated when at times it switches away to spiritual pretentiousness.

Rois has moments of desperate urgency and depth, but Twyker's love of parallels is finally done in by artsy shots of the threesome au naturel against stark white backdrops.

Tykwer exhibits a fondness for split screens and other eye candy but no interest in formalities like character and plot development.

...Tom Tykwer's provocative and ferociously intelligent 3, a movie no Hollywood studio would ever green-light but which is nonetheless one of this year's best films so far.

A sensuous intellectual romp whose strong casting makes it involving, even when sentimentality creeps into the story or ideas present themselves in boldface.

The lyrical conclusion, set to the surging, diaphanous music of Debussy, gives "3" a surprisingly sweet aftertaste.

[Showcases] a restless, ambitious talent who invariably puts an idiosyncratic stamp on his material, no matter how ordinary it is at the core.

A playfully pieced-together, beautifully shot, and secretly ridiculous drama about a triangular relationship among blasť Berliners.

You can't shake the feeling that 3 exists primarily to justify a shot of three figures impeccably posed together on a mattress.

Willing suspension of disbelief -- or suppression of giggles -- is required.
