This cloying, voices-from-the-other-side story is hell.
The film's darker moments become smoothed over by an overwhelming need to tender inspirational tidings, especially in the last few cloying moments.
There are times when A Rumor of Angels plays like an extended episode of Touched by an Angel -- a little too much dancing, a few too many weeping scenes -- but I liked its heart and its spirit.
A spiritual exploration of sorts, offering a message of hope that resonates.
The screenplay by James Eric, James Horton and director Peter O'Fallon ... is so pat it makes your teeth hurt.
Denver should not get the first and last look at one of the most triumphant performances of Vanessa Redgrave's career. It deserves to be seen everywhere.
A soft, overly familiar coming of age tale, though in small, eccentric role Vanessa Redgrave is good.
For those with an aversion to such sentimentality, especially when associated with the spirit world, Vanessa Redgrave is still reason enough to see A Rumor of Angels.
Given the fact that virtually no one is bound to show up at theatres for it, the project should have been made for the tube.
Long on twinkly-eyed close-ups and short on shame.
The actors are fantastic. They are what makes it worth the trip to the theatre.
The actors don't inhabit their roles -- they're trapped by them, forced to change behavior in bizarre unjustified fashion and spout dialog that consists mostly of platitudes.
A difficult movie to watch. All the characters deal with death in their own ways. Is there hope?
A very touching story. Top notch actors. Oh boy did I wanna cry at the end!
Vanessa Redgrave is vivid and touching as always. She alone raises this out of the ordinary, the rest of the cast is okay if a bit ill defined and there is a considerable schmaltz factor but Vanessa overcomes all obstacles.
