Critic Reviews for Seventh Heaven (1927)
A world of rough cobblestones and exploding trenches softened by romance made tangible
If it weren't for the existence of Murnau's Sunrise, I wouldn't hesitate to call 7th Heaven the greatest of all silent films.
The kind of movie that births a lifelong love affair with silent cinema... I'd be extraordinarily hard-pressed to come up with any way in which it's not flawless.
Gorgeously filmed (by Frank Borzage) film featuring Gaynor and Farrell.
By today's standards, Borzage's romantic melodrama is sappy and outdated, but in 1927, the Oscar-nominated silent film was extremely popular with (female) audiences.
Audience Reviews for Seventh Heaven (1927)
the film is wildly romantic and won an oscar in 1927 for frank borzage's direction. janet gaynor won best actress, a dual award for this and murnau's much better remembered sunrise. borzage seems to have slipped into obscurity after the silent era which is a shame. he made 2 other silent features with janet gaynor and charles farrell, street angel and lucky star, among many other films. this has some great rooftop scenes of paris and well-staged WW1 battle scenes, shot by up and coming john ford. it's really quite wonderful
A beautiful and brilliantly made romantic drama with some comedy and suspense. I loved the ending too, it was fantastic. I highly recommend this movie.
By the time the Oscars started, narrative movies had already been around for roughly two decades. And this was the last big year for silent pictures. This film impressed me because the acting is less over-the-top than earlier silents, the story is good, and the camera work and use of tints to suggest different locations and emotions made for visual interest.
