Critic Reviews for Paradise: Love

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (15)

The striking compositions mingle childlike curiosity with adult decadence -- and natural beauty with garish consumer culture -- to provocative, even profound effect.

That churning in your stomach may be unpleasant, but it's necessary for the film to deliver its knockout punch.

May 23, 2013 | Rating: 3/4

The whole affair curdles into a feeling of unearned, defensive superiority.

May 3, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Ulrich Seidl: sadomasochistic provocateur or compassionate observer of the human condition?

May 2, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

One of the most disturbing films I've seen in a very long time.

April 26, 2013 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Seidl sternly rejects nuance. All the women are crude and insensitive, all the men are desperate and exploited.
