A woman takes the law into her own hands after police ignore her pleas to arrest the man responsible for her husband's death, and finds herself not only under arrest for murder but falling in love with an officer.
Love, retribution and redemption. Devastated by her husband's death from a drug overdose, Philippa, a British teacher living in Turin, Italy, tries to bring justice to the biggest drug dealer in Turin when the local police ignore her information about him. In building a home-made bomb and setting off a plan that fails miserably, her status changes from young widow to that of a criminal in custody. Young police officer Filipo descends into Philippa's life, changing her bleak outlook on existence into one in search of tranquility among corruption, as they become unlikely soul mates and lovers.Written by
The train shown when Filippo and Philippa arrive in Tuscany is not compatible with the passenger car seen from the inside in earlier shots. See more »
[in Italian supervising simulation]
Follow the terrain. Good. Keep it perpendicular to the ridge. That's it. Under real conditions you might have to compensate for the wind here. Now, maintain you height. Watch your height, careful.
[climbing higher simulator switches off]
In a real helicopter you can't just keep flying higher.
How high can I fly?

I was so excited to see another Tom Tykwer film (Run Lola Run, Winter Sleepers), and even more to see a Krzysztof Kieslowski story (Three Colors: Red, White & Blue) by Tom Tykwer. Unfortunately, I found it rather boring. I should have seen it coming. Tykwer, best known for his quick action montages seems to have tried to mimic Kieslowski's long and pensive style, to no avail. The story is thin and fairly uneventful. The long pensive shots I was talking about are stretched to awkward proportions. The acting is alright, but not terribly special. The cinematography was good, but not terribly interesting. I would have expected more from Tykwer. Unfortunately, I have to give "Heaven" a 6/10, and I think my grade is somewhat biased due to my appreciation of Tykwer's other works.
