The Discovery of Heaven Reviews

    An interesting premise ruined by a dramatic shift in tone and content from a love triangle romantic comedy to a fantasy thriller.

    Although the book has many more layers and is a wonderful read I was thoroughly impressed by the way Krabbe directed this. A delightful watch.

    Read the book, people! If you've read the book there's no way you can appreciate this film, it doesn't grasp the 'largeness' of the book at all.

    O fantástico livro não coube dentro deste filme medíocre, muito mal servido pelos seus actores (e pelo argumentista), com a excepção do notável Stephen Fry, o único que conseguiu fazer a sua personagem valer a pena. Por ele, leva as duas estrelas, senão ficava-se por uma.

    this is a very bad interpretation of a fabulous book, it doesn't provide any insight into the characters, their ideas; I highly recommend the book but strongly advice not to watch the movie

    i hate to say it, but the book is a heck of a lot better. The movie never gets to the deeper underlying issue the book touches on

    Unbelievable, as if the existence of Heaven isn't enough then how about Stephen Fry having sex with WOMEN? One roughly from behind over a vibrating washing machine! Fry is splendid - although deliciously unconvincing during the straight sexual sequences, it's well written (adapted) and directed, the other leading cast members are all great too. A quite interesting and utterly brilliant film.

    One advice: read the book before viewing this one. Some books can't be made into a movie. Still, it was better than I expected. Nice try, but the book is still infinitely better.
