Tom Tykwer's adaptation of Krzysztof Kieslowski's posthumous script Heaven (co-written, as usual, with Krzysztof Pieciewicz) opened today in Sweden and I caught it at the Grand Theatre in Stockholm. Wow. Amazing film. I'd only seen Lola Rennt before, and quite frankly, wasn't that impressed. I thought it was, ironically enough, Kieslowski-lite, but well directed. The direction in Heaven is top-notch. From the opening to the breathtaking finale, nearly every shot is perfect. Cate Blanchett was her usual amazing self, but I was most impressed with Giovanni Ribisi, who was convincing as an Italian. It's scheduled to open in October in the US, and I highly recommend all who are either fans of Lola Rennt or Kieslowski's work to check it out. In yesterday's Svenska Dagbladet, there was an interview with Tykwer where he said he passed on doing the other two scripts, Hell and Purgatory, which Mirimax also own. I can't wait to see them. Has anyone else caught this yet?
