    A life so tragically and quickly extinguished presents maudlin temptations, but director Marc Rothemund ably resists them. His gripping, moving film focuses on a breathtakingly brief five-day period.

    In his film's better moments, Kollek makes us laugh at these visions while also revealing their grace and frailty.

    The storyline sometimes veers into melodrama; a subplot concerning Alex's involvement in the white-slave trade is particularly lurid. But the director retains a light touch in the character of Aurelie, whose combination of innocence and knowing is magical.

    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Appears strangely dated, and its unspecified location seems existentially hokey.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    The film's pathos lies not with people who have justice on their side, but with those who don't know where they belong.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Falters when it takes a final, violent turn into melodrama.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Krabbé alternates exaggeration with sentiment, but the main characters are relatively complex, and its surprise ending is genuinely affecting.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Vardalos's parodies of Greek family values are loving and witheringly hilarious.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Unusual in its ambition to pose deep spiritual questions, but its enticing surfaces -- including the beautiful working girls and Isabelle Adjani's surprise cameo as a Bardot-esque starlet -- are the best thing about it.
    • 64 Metascore

    It's also frustrating-we long to learn more about each individual. Still, the sheer fascination and profoundly moving power of these stories transcend the film's more conventional limitations.

    What makes After Midnight more than just another ménage à trois (in homage to Truffaut) is the way Ferrario, who also writes about movies, weaves the allure of early film into a contemporary story, shot with the latest high-definition technology.

    Hardcore Kiarostami devotees may miss the master's harsher clarity, but Hatami, best known for her starring role in Dariush Mehrjui's "Leila," makes her character's inner transformation both subtle and palpable.

    If the film's redemptive ending is a fairy tale, it's one we willingly embrace.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Marvelously grizzled and tender, Josef Bierbichler's Brecht wheezes and grumbles through it all.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Camhi
    Politics hover at the edges of even the most affectionate encounters among Danae, her parents, and the Obeidallah family. Amos Elon's negativity regarding the future of the Jewish state mars the film, yet Another Road Home moves beyond dark predictions.
    • 73 Metascore

    Van Looy has created a fast-paced and stylish thriller. Declair's Ledda, marvelously suave and vulnerable, provides most of the pathos.

    At times the film's Buddhist lessons feel a bit forced, but the naturalistic performances Davaa has coaxed from a real-life Mongolian family, and her intimate understanding of their culture and values, give this sensitive portrayal its heft.
    • 46 Metascore

    Montias's script lacks surprises -- Still, the minor figures surrounding him (Bobby) -- from teenage Puerto Rican beauties to a mobster's middle-aged groupie -- form a gritty urban mosaic, and Bobby's wanton energy is utterly convincing.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    It's a giddy farce worthy of Lucy and Ethel, and Peploe plays up the buffoonery.
    • 61 Metascore

    Wargnier has assembled a stellar French and Russian cast, but all that talent can't overcome his heavy-handed screenplay.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Brought to life by the weirdness of its subject matter and the risks Madhur Jaffrey takes in her brilliant performance.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Himalaya lacks such lightness, humor, and grace, offering instead the surface beauty of an ancient and inviolate culture.

    It traces a sustained and moving portrait of the worldly Sam, whose despair as the society he embraced abandons him is both clear-eyed and devastating.
    • 46 Metascore

    Offers an incisive glimpse into one woman's inner transformation -- her secret sense of loss in the midst of plenty and her sudden perception of a world of suffering lying just beyond her home.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    There's much to admire here, including an often witty script and a cast that includes Theresa Russell, Seymour Cassel, and the irrepressible Lupe Ontiveros (Celia's mother-in-law).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Flawed but fascinating.
    • 59 Metascore

    It does best when it leaves behind hothouse literary discussions and closes in on these two legendary behemoths, battling for sexual supremacy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Camhi
    Baltasar Kormákur's wacky version of "King Lear," set in an Icelandic village where virtually everyone plays the fool.

    Handsomely shot, German filmmaker Sandra Nettelbeck's third feature suffers from a certain romantic predictability.
    • 72 Metascore

    Relies on the hefty talents of its two leading ladies.
