On a beautiful cloudless day a young couple celebrate their reunion with a picnic. Joe has planned a postcard-perfect afternoon in the English countryside with his partner, Claire. But as Joe and Claire prepare to open a bottle of champagne, their idyll comes to an abrupt end. A hot air balloon drifts into the field, obviously in trouble. The pilot catches his leg in the anchor rope, while the only passenger, a boy, is too scared to jump down. Joe and three other men rush to secure the basket.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a genuinely intriguing thriller and a mystery with a most rewarding conclusion."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Though Ifans has the splashier role, Craig, last seen in Michell's previous film, 2003's equally provocative The Mother, is outstanding as a man whose philosophy cannot be reconciled with his feelings."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"If you don't have the range to play anything other than the same sort of comedic role as an over-the-top human oddity, maybe you shouldn't try to ply your trade as a dramatic actor."
‑ Kam Williams, Sly Fox
"'Enduring Love' -- at least until its final 20 minutes -- is considerably more intelligent and less sensationalistic than most thrillers of this type."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Wholly absorbing... subtly trapping us in the perspective of a beleaguered protagonist, who himself is trapped in an inchoate state of grief and fantasy."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"A fatal lack of character development dooms Enduring Love as little more than a fleeting curiosity."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"It's not entirely satisfying, but it's too intriguing to dismiss."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Daniel Craig gives a solid performance in the tradition of Hitchcock's wrong men."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"The notion that being stalked can lead to a spiritual rebirth is pretty goofy, but Enduring Love is skillful enough to make it seem like a reasonable proposition."
‑ Paul Matwychuk, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Love is a delicate thing, and identity even more so. Enduring Love breathtakingly tears both asunder to find them anew...it is, in a word, exquisite."
‑ Gabriel Shanks, Mixed Reviews
"It's heady stuff, though stretched too far for convenience."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Full of hot air."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"A tale of obsession with less hot air than your average thriller."
‑ Anton Bitel, Movie Gazette
"An iconoclastic meditation on human devotion that might as easily be condemning its titular emotion as lauding it."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"Puts the psychological back into psychological thriller."
‑ Duane Dudek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
