Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A small-scale domestic drama with large-scale feeling."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"It is as emotionally raw and wrenching as life itself."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Absent of nihilism, this nonetheless is a love triangle film with all the darkness and pain and love and longing that goes into these complex, adult relationships."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Unusual and provocative, Open Hearts is a genuine romantic drama written and delivered with heart-wrenching honesty."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Has the wherewithal to follow through on its dramatic dalliances, no matter how gloomy the prospect."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"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."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Open Hearts is a heart-wrenching soap opera that even The Young and the Restless can't compete with."
‑ Kathy Cano Murillo, Arizona Republic
"Arguably, the dogma movement has found its most accomplished expression to date in Open hearts."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, european-films.net
"One instance where Dogme's subtraction of extraneous elements turns out to be a plus."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Director Susanne Bier and co-writer Anders Thomas Jensen draw attention away from the famous Dogme gimmick... and pull us into a surprisingly powerful emotional snafu."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"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."
‑ C.W. Nevius, San Francisco Chronicle
"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."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Reminds me of the best of Bergman's chamber dramas. Nerves are exposed, hearts opened and emotions bared, all under Bier's X-ray cameras."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"Refreshingly honest."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"What Open Hearts does best is capture the raw, frank essence of hurt."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
