      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Dazzling, but a little dull, ANIARA's impeccable production design is undermined by its underwhelming philosophical pondering.

      Audience Member this movie was no doubt very weird, but kept me entertained the whole time. wild story. ending is fuckkkkked up tho Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Green C Mind-bending and spooky. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Mari D The most amazing movies I've seen all year. One of the only movies to make me cry at the end. Just watch it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Dale P Slow, depressing, and typical bleak euro. Feels like a lot of the "rescue probe" thread got left on the cutting room floor, so that was rather pointless. Actors were good though. Felt a lot like other movies that were created from very short stories – etherial and disconnected. Difficult to engage with the entire runtime Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Jennifer M This is a movie I won't soon forget. It's beautiful, and moving, and heartbreaking. I loved it but was also left feeling quite despondent and alone, as the timeline continued. It is both one of the most beautiful, but also most depressing movies I've ever seen. I appreciate that it didn't have a fake Disney-eque happy ending, because real life rarely does. If you enjoy Sci-Fi with a deeper meaning, give this a view. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review robert i while not amazing, its pretty cool. kind of gets you thinking about time, the vastness of space, our lifespans, our species longevity... this is based on a 1956 (!) book length poem. now i want to read it.

      Wendy Ide Guardian A haunting allegorical tale, Aniara warns of humanity hurtling in the wrong direction and realising too late that there is no turning back. Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2019 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian A cold, cruel, piercingly humane sci-fi parable that's both bang on the zeitgeist and yet also unnervingly original. Rated: 4/5 Aug 28, 2019 Full Review Ty Burr Boston Globe "Aniara" may be the coolest, costliest, most dystopian shaggy-dog story ever filmed. Rated: 2.5/4 May 24, 2019 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast A deep, probing meditation on the acceptance of one’s place in the universe... Aniara might be a ship without a destination but this film is ultimately destined to become a timeless sci-fi classic. Rated: 5/5 Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Michael J. Casey Michael J. Cinema As interesting as "Aniara" is to think about, the movie isn't exactly an engaging watch. Rated: 3/5 Mar 8, 2021 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine This is a smart, science fiction drama with a particularly literary sensibility. Rated: 8/10 Nov 17, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
