    A stunningly beautiful epic with a very original concept that breaks from the standard immigrant story, here it is the emigrant story about departure, and the dream.

    Some wonderful moments in this film visually and emotionally, but unfortunately uneven. Way better than most films however.

    50 minutes shorter and maybe there is a movie here! It just dragged on. The art direction and cinematography was excellent.

  1. The greatness of Golden Door is its tone; sympathetic but always wry.

    An imaginative, intelligent and attractive Italo pic precisely when the country needs it most, Emanuele Crialese's Golden Door reps a solid piece of cinema that neither panders nor preaches.

    With dialogue kept to a minimum, cinematographer Agn├ęs Godard confirms her status as one of the most extraordinary visual artists working today.
