Overview

German filmmaker Tom Tykwer helmed this feature, which was adapted from a screenplay co-authored by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski. Philippa Cate Blanchett is a British schoolteacher living in Italy, whose husband fell victim to a drug overdose, as have several of her students. Marco Vendice Stefano Santospago is a powerful local drug dealer who sold the dope which killed Philippa's husband, as well as a number of neighborhood teens. Disgusted with the inability of the police to bring Vendice to justice, Philippa takes the law into her own hands, planting a bomb which is intended to kill the dealer. However, Philippa's plan goes awry, and instead the bomb kills four innocent bystanders. Philippa is arrested and brought before the police for questioning, not knowing that the interrogating officer in charge of the case, Pini Mattia Sbragia, is one of Vendice's secret business associates. More comfortable with English than Italian, Philippa requests a translator, and multilingual officer Filippo Giovanni Ribisi is brought in to serve as interpreter. Filippo finds himself falling in love with Philippa, and with his help she's able to escape and go into hiding; however, despite her deep regrets about the loss of four lives in the bombing, she is still bound and determined to see Vendice dead.

    'Heaven' is a breathtaking and moving experience

    Heaven is a touching and moving film, with superb acting and breathtaking cinematography. The movie relies more on visuals - what is not said, rather than what is said. The position of a body, a hand, the facial expressions, speaks volumes. The camera shots, the angles, and the purity of silence relay more meaning than words alone can express. There is one scene where Phillipa and Filipo are shot from a distance, silhouetted in the sunset, and there is pure and perfect silence - no background music to invoke a mood. The mood is created simply in the beautiful camera work, and in the silence itself. There are no words, or even close ups of the faces, because they are not necessary here. The Space Cam produced the most beautiful and dreamlike visuals of the countryside, that are almost trancelike in their beauty. This movie did not get its due, nor did the superb direction, or the moving performance by Cate Blanchett. The synopsis of this film cannot relay the depth and layers of this movie, because it relies so much on visuals. There is far more substance to it than just the story itself.

    Heaven is heavenly.

    The opening sequence, remember it. And the sound, from the opening sequence on to the end, is haunting. Cate Blanchett and Giovanni Ribisi are excellent. (And speak Italian so well they bring you right into the story.) I loved the part of Filippo's dad as well. The scenery and cinematography are captivating. This ain't no action flick. It's a painting and a song, a work of art, from the setting in Turin and Tuscany to the characters and the ambience. This is a must see!

    Brilliant!!

    A very interesting movie, I must say. Very interesting. I've never seen a movie quite like this before. The scenery and art directiong were absoulutely fantastic. The movie was very quiet. There weren't too many words or annoying backround music. It was mainly acting (which was fabulous). I was very much intrigued by this movie. I definitly reccomend it:)
