Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Awash in angelic choruses and panoramic scenery, the movie aspires toward a solemnity that Dana Stevens's prosaic psychobabbling screenplay cannot support.
Fresh: As a remake it's not as poetic as Wenders' masterpiece Wings of Desire, but it's supremely mounted (by ace lenser John Seale) and contains touching performances from Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan deviating from their respective screen images.
Fresh: It manages to leave a pleasant afterglow for those in the mood for its kind of loving.
Rotten: The movie has its affecting moments, but the drearily inevitable has come true -- an original and rather haunting poetic conception has been turned into a literal-minded love story.
A touching film by Nicholas Cage that derserves FIVE stars.
