Even by Mr. Ward's own high standards in the area of idiosyncrasy, this is a daringly peculiar tale.
The best movies seem to reinvent themselves as they move along, not drawing from worn-out sources, and Map of the Human Heart is one of the year's best films.
A film of incantatory intensity and moment by a prodigiously gifted young filmmaker.
Despite its historical surrounding and a few stabs at thematic depth, Map of the Human Heart has all the flavor and plot complexity of a Harlequin romance.
New Zealander Vincent Ward's Map of the Human Heart spans half the century and most of the world, from 1931 to 1966, the Arctic to England, telling an unlikely story with visionary verve.
As directed and co-written by Vincent Ward, this romantic drama tries to say something poignant about a doomed interracial love and the fateful nature of human encounters, but everything about it is excessive.
Visually stunning and emotionally powerful... a buried treasure.
Succeeds admirably in showing us just how much love the heart can hold in the face of so many obstacles and so much pain.
An interesting, overlooked film
Dreamy, romantic, and ultimately haunting. A rare movie that deserves to be called a true original.
The love story (which features Jason Scott Lee and Anne Parillaud) that means to add pathos to this cultural collision doesn't generate enough heat. But the theme tantalizes, and many of the images soar.
Map of the Human Heart is one of those rare films that illuminates a single human story, and does it so well that you're hardly aware you're watching a movie.
Nice. Moving. Touching...even though the style of this movie definitely shows its age. Much has happened in the last 20 yrs to improve productions. To see this movie made again, with todays expertise, would be really fantastic. FYI: John Cusack is in this for less than 5 min...
The movie starts off very well with interesting relationships between Inuit, European and other Meso-American peoples and then switches gears into a sweeping romance. Jason Scott Lee really steps up to and fills his role as an Inuit who is drawn into a world he is unfamiliar with. By the time the film gets to WWII it might as well be Pearl Harbor w/ burning models instead of god CGI. As a note Cusack has a 5 Minute role sitting at a table looking at a map listening to Lee retell his story
Average film narrative about an Inuit Eskimo's life and his relationship with a half-breed Indian girl that looks like its epic story.
