critics consensus

Dazzling, but a little dull, ANIARA's impeccable production design is undermined by its underwhelming philosophical pondering. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Aniara

  • May 25, 2019
    Journeys through space have always been around throughout the medium of film and television. While I don't find many of them fantastic, due to the silliness that most of them present to their audience, there are a few that are even some of my favourite films of all time, because a good film is a good film, regardless of the subject matter. With that said, Aniara may not end up on my list of best sci-fi films ever made or anything like that, but as of now, it's one of the more impressive films I've seen in 2019 for many reasons. Following a group of settlers who are en route to Mars, their shuttle is knocked off-course, sending many of the passengers into a frenzy. With no hope in sight, this shuttle becomes their new home until a possible survival plan may come to fruition. I can't dive into certain details without ruining the overall experience of this movie, but I will simply say that this is a film that takes its time where it needs to and is quite energetic throughout other instances. This film took a very simple premise and built it up as a very, very engaging piece of filmmaking. While I will be praising this film for the majority of this review, I know for a fact that this film isn't for everyone. Those who find unique or strange aspects to movies as a distraction or quite simply just isn't your cup of tea, you'll most likely find yourself scratching your head throughout the majority of this movie, not due to confusion, but to why you're even watching it in the first place. This is the perfect example of a movie that will probably be split down the middle in terms of critical reception. From admirable cinematography and very unique ways of framing certain objects and characters, I became fascinated by this movie. With the help of an impressive score and an overall atmosphere and setting that felt realistic (for the most part), nothing felt cheap about this movie in the slightest. I have a feeling Aniara will be horribly overlooked this year, but if you're a hardcore fit fan and like many genres, then I would seek this one out. I will be surprised if this one doesn't make my best of the year list, but as I said, many viewers will question my taste because of that, so I would recommend watching the trailer and decide for yourself.
