A film about these shards of life experience and our often desperate attempts to collect them, assemble them, make sense of them or simply live with them without disruption.

Bee Season is an intelligent, mesmerizing, thought-provoking work, so extraordinary in its content and presentation it is hard to believe it ever got made.

Words and letters may hold all the secrets of the universe, but 104 minutes wasn't enough to hold and resolve all the secrets and mysteries of Bee Season.

Perhaps the film's disparate subplots are given due attention in the book, but it all feels unfocused and jammed together here.

A well-told, enjoyable and insightful film, but its not necessarily as revelatory as its makers seem to think.

A visual feast, but a spiritual famine.

We're knee-deep in tastefully presented balderdash.

...sneaks up on you starting as a family drama and tells that story in the guise of a religious thriller.
December 6, 2005
A tiresome piece of claptrap masquerading as family drama.

The premise is intriguing, but the oddly toned screenplay is a mostly opaque and convoluted string of dramatically convenient yet inconsistent assumptions.
