Review of Heaven: Beautiful Meditation on Fate

by Tom Tykwer

Heaven combines a project that Krzysztof Kieślowski was planning on shooting before his death with German director Tom Tykwer. I wasn’t sure what to expect and it was a quiet, contemplative film that glides along as we see coincidences and consequences of decisions that we make. With just enough detail revealed it is a beautiful and poetic film that is a lot more than simply a plot. A great film with solid performances by Giovanni Ribisi and Cate Blanchett in a visually and emotionally stunning film.
