Critic Reviews for ANIARA

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

Never establishes a coherent intellectual vantage point from which to contemplate the monumentality of the eternal void. It's a film that wants to be visionary but isn't.

Aniara is astonishingly ambitious, an unlikely emotional rollercoaster anchored by a beautifully-realized protagonist who manages to maintain hope and optimism without being a Pollyanna.

It's an intriguing premise that's employed to sporadically compelling yet predominantely underwhelming effect...

A thought-provoking and unsettling slow-motion disaster movie.

Kågerman and Lilja bring Martinson's poem to cinemas with a stark beauty both in its sci-fi production design and emotionally wrought performances.

Aniara has great world building and an interesting premise, but its runtime and pacing make this just a boring sci-fi film
