Never establishes a coherent intellectual vantage point from which to contemplate the monumentality of the eternal void. It's a film that wants to be visionary but isn't.
Aniara is astonishingly ambitious, an unlikely emotional rollercoaster anchored by a beautifully-realized protagonist who manages to maintain hope and optimism without being a Pollyanna.
It's an intriguing premise that's employed to sporadically compelling yet predominantely underwhelming effect...
A thought-provoking and unsettling slow-motion disaster movie.
Kågerman and Lilja bring Martinson's poem to cinemas with a stark beauty both in its sci-fi production design and emotionally wrought performances.
Aniara has great world building and an interesting premise, but its runtime and pacing make this just a boring sci-fi film
Swedish existential dread in outer space, with a suicidal AI, ritualistic orgies and a giant galactic shopping mall: this striking first feature from Pella Kågerman and Hugo Lilja is a work of daunting ambition.
The collective reactions of everyone on board, and the delay with which orgies disguised as cults start to appear, feel like miscalculations, and not only because they make the film a bore to sit through
A great concept, a coherent tone, an uncompromising vision, and an ending that's the ballsiest thing I've seen since AI. Sadly these virtues are undercut by some unforgivable sins - it is boring.
I didn't know the world needed a stark European riff on Douglas Trumbull's Silent Running and Ben Wheatley's High-Rise... but take it from me: we did, and now we've got it.
