What to know

critics consensus

Eden uses 1990s club culture as the appropriately intoxicating backdrop for a sensitive, low-key look at aging and the price of pursuing one's dreams. Read critic reviews

    While I think most cub scouts have better survival skills, this movie was unique and intriguing. It held my interest. If you turn your brain off and just sit back and enjoy the psychological turmoil, it's quite enjoyable, despite its delicious darkness. The Barbie-doll girls were annoying, as were the testosterone fight-scenes and the blatant stupidity, but still, I surprisingly really enjoyed this movie!

    It's a unique examination of an artist, one who experiences a brief moment of relevancy before quickly fading into obscurity . . . which is somehow sadder than being a total failure.

    "Eden" might not be the deepest or most evocative movie ever, especially as it concerns the house music scene over a twenty year period. Of interest however is the way the movie captures the passage of time as Paul(Felix de Givry) never seems to age(cue obvious reference about him having a photograph that ages while I look around for an appropriate "Penny Dreadful" reference) while he pursues his dreams. At the same time, life seems to be passing him by, as lovers come and go, first Julia(Greta Gerwig), a married American, and then Louise(Pauline Etienne). The frightening part is when Paul's friends start having kids, instead of trying to defend "Showgirls."

    Hansen-Løve's intimate, low-key approach may come off as a bit too stiff for the film's own sake - mainly, the dialogue sounds markedly stiff and the delivery of the lines by the actors also -, but there is a sensitive quality to her story that makes it curiously affecting.
