    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?

    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
