    A small-scale domestic drama with large-scale feeling.

    Open Hearts is far from inaccessible, but it demands a higher level of concentration than most big-budget movies do. The drama exists in a glance or a nod, or in a slight hesitation in speech.

    4/5
    Name user

    There is no doubting the heart-rending impact of the story. But because it is made clear from the start that there is no chance of an uplifting ending, viewers may grow restless.

    2/4

    It is as emotionally raw and wrenching as life itself.

    3/4
    Name user

    Open Hearts is a heart-wrenching soap opera that even The Young and the Restless can't compete with.

    4/5
    Name user

    It crackles with chemistry that feels both spontaneous and carefully layered, and, like the best Dogma entries, it takes a potentially sudsy premise and lays it bare until all that's left is the humanity.

    B+
    Name user

    An emotionally honest character piece that avoids moralizing or offering soggy excuses.

    3/4
    Name user

    Open Hearts, like all good melodramas, is ruthless in its insistence that people are dragged, uncomprehending, in the wake of events.

    3/4

    A movie that really works.

    The cast seems to have burrowed into the material.

    Name user

    Bier knows what she's doing, and the performances are expert and affecting.

    3/4
    Name user

    Honesty, conveyed by the actors' unsentimental performances, Anders Thomas Jensen's truth-seeking script, and an effective use of the Dogma 95 style of hand-held filmmaking, invigorates Bier's well-made film.

    B+
    Name user

    The gritty, low-budget realism approach of the Dogme manifesto gives immediacy and edge to the raw emotions Bier and her cast uncover.

    3/5
    Name user

    Bier has seized on the freedom and spontaneity made possible by the Dogme program, without taking onboard the movement's snooty arrogance toward the mainstream.

    Name user

    At a point when the whole Dogme exercise seemed to be losing creative steam, along comes Bier with welcome filmmaking substance to invigorate the stripped-down style.

    Name user

    A powerful, well-acted drama exploring the impact of a catastrophic automobile accident on several lives.

    Name user

    Until the end, when it begins to go soft, the movie takes two strands of soap opera convention -- a life-changing accident and an adulterous affair -- and spins their suds into gold.

    4/5
    Name user

    However schematic, the movie percolates with immediacy and genuine warmth.
