Ratings & Reviews

  1. Andrea HV's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

  2. Kaliope's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    I made it to the 56 minute mark. Once the method of telling the story, which involves having a section from Otto’s point of view first then followed by the same section from Ana’s perspective, became tedious, I realized that I didn’t really care about the characters enough to continue.

  3. Alex's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Uh, wow. I was not expecting most of that. I loved it. With all of its petulance.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    20 years plus later Medem's wonderfully romantic feature anchored by the concept of coincidence stands as an iconic achievement in Spanish cinema. The scripting (by the director) is quite sublime introducing its weaving stories slowly but bringing all the elements together for a moving and contemplative finish. Casting is great across the board especially a heart breaking turn by Najwa Nimri.

  5. BC's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    A profound look of time and fate and destiny. This is an intellectual film; demanding of both mind and emotion in a phantasmagoria of ethereal cinematography and symbology.

  6. qacof0bia's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

  7. Constance Bennett's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    One of my favourite love stories.

  8. chaotic femme's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    A NOT SO SIMPLE TWIST OF FATE

  9. ninchok's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Why are all the films I choose to watch lately so incredibly beautiful and rich in almost every aspect but always end up breaking my tiny specially-for-films heart a little.

  10. Joao Domingues's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    The search for meaning in the flap of the wings of a butterfly

  11. aconeyisland's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

  12. Loz Loory's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    2.5 Wanted to love this due to the great ratings, but found all the coincidences almost tedious. What rang painfully true was the plaza scene where they completely miss each other. Found the ending tiresome with the multiple inter-titled viewpoints, as though the audience couldn't figure out what happened. Wish Ana and her mother had more scenes, as they were interesting and not unpleasant like Otto and his father.

  13. Creighton Blinn's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Another reminder of how influential Kieslowski's variations on blind chance were to 90s/early 00s cinema. Still Medem puts his own twist on it.

  14. Ella's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

  15. richardm2311's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    A beautiful exploration of love, perception, and time, I can see why this film is highly regarded. The storytelling never fails to be compelling, the dialogue driving forward with a deft touch for both intimacy and poignancy. The cinematography is, at times, breathtaking, and the soundtrack and sound editing are both evocative and high quality. While moments of melodrama dampen its effect, this is an excellent film.

  16. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    It doesn't quite get the tone right throughout, but this is an enjoyably odd tale of destiny, love, and repeating events. Acting is okay, as is the script, but the best aspect of the movie is the idea at the heart of it.

  17. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Wow is Wow spelled backwards, and upside down Mom.

  18. morgancurtis's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Good looking film. And a worthwhile experience for those who enjoy being spoon-fed fairytale sentimentality (I sometimes do.). I was expecting some slow-simmered character development and far more life-like complexity in this film for some reason. Guess I wasn't in the mood for what I got.

  19. Issy Chan's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    I hate that I wasted hours of my life watching this poetic melodrama. Once I finally got into it I thought this ain't so bad. Then it ended, like that. Screw you, Medem! Sentimental, but ultimately pointless. 2 stars because I've seen worse.

  20. bonny's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Love this movie. Love is both a coincidence and a destiny at the same time.

  21. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    For some reason it didn't work. Maybe it was a coincidence...

  22. Mouth Breather's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Totally fundamental chasing around everything, like the nordic sun which only edges the horizon, never to touch the lake. Eros is a game in this film, whose consequences blossom, multiply, crystallise into southern rains, news broadcasts and plane crashes... all viewers should go out to chase things too... Valiente... ..

  23. Holly McGratten's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Oddly, the film's style reminded me a little of Wes Anderson - led by narration of protagonist, long pauses over close-ups of facial expression despite being just imagery for the narration (which is no bad choice) and very abrupt scene endings, cut-to's and cutaways. Lovely bit of magic realism. Fast paced and acted brilliantly by each generation of the characters.

  24. William R Clark's rating of the film Lovers of the Arctic Circle

    Wow, this turn-of-the-century faux art house obsession with coincidences is probably worth writing about (end of history, blah blah blah). I mean I can't sit through a single second of it. Because the whole idea is: every action has to be telegraphed and reified, every frame must be pointedly repetitive. Some find it romantic but for me its a big whirlpool of abyssal, meaningless nonsense. Very sorry.
