Another Recommended Film

I didn't see this film this weekend. I saw it months ago. Maybe even six months ago. For some reason this weekend, it came back to me, hard and strong. It's called Heaven and stars Cate Blanchett and Giovanni Ribisi. Directed at a very different pace by the guy who did Run, Lola, Run and written by Krzysztof Kieslowski of the Three Colours Trilogy (Red, White,, and Blue), it's a meditation on the grace we can offer each other here on earth. Blanchett owns the screen throughout the film and there's some lovely scenery.
