    It's the sort of movie that could haunt your dreams for weeks. In the end, it is, as promised, all about love—this brave, foolish, improbably moving film's great achievement may be the utter sincerity with which it lives up to its title.

    A weird hybrid of cloning thriller and futuristic love story, with hints of "The Godfather" and "Ice Castles" - and it wears its disjointed nature like a badge of honor.

    A stew of silliness that's so ridiculous it's almost entertaining. Almost.

    The experiment didn't work. The English-language production is a jumble of poorly delineated notions about love, celebrity, the look of romantic movies, and the sound of American-style dialogue - and it's been sitting on the shelf for over a year.
  5. A cringing romance that Mr. Vinterberg tries and fails to spin into a political allegory.

    The director doesn't display the spirit of a natural entertainer; while intellectual notions abound, he never grabs the audience by the hand to pull them into the tale emotionally.

    Vinterberg's execution is overstuffed, unoriginal and often downright incomprehensible. And what's Sean Penn doing dangling off airplanes -- pontificating, as usual, from a great height?

    I enjoyed this movie because it's haunting and mysterious from the start. The discovery of the clones without love is enlightening. It's all about love indeed. And when love disappears, the world is going to be turned upside down. You must see it because it sets you in a very special mood. Peace and love! Expand

    Incomprehensible and confusing as a movie, the director could have worked less at being "profound" and artsy-craftsy. Some good visual moments are marred by an uncomfortable cast a really silly science. Expand

    This was a total waste of time. The only reason why it even gets four is beacause of the gorgeous Claire Danes appears in four roles.

    Sorry, I wanted to like this because of the talent involved but it turned out to be a boring mess. Scenes plod on too long with no real point and the whole thing ultimately feels empty. It tries to come across as deep but it's really just incomprehensible. Expand

    A disjointed attempt at metaphors about love, loss and betrayal. When the movie needs a pseudo-narrator (Sean Penn) to try and explain the movie's meaning then it is lost. And I would think that New Yorkers would be losing their gravity long before Ugandan' s would. Come on!!!! Expand

    Attempts allegory, succeeds as garbage. Really awful. Vintenberg should give the money back. Even while you're watching it, you still can't believe it is so bad -- worse, you can't believe you're watching something so boring. Expand
