The film is successful in an absorbing sort of way, but underwhelming.

It's a funny, fearless, suspenseful sex comedy that, in drawing on science and philosophy and art and death, risks accusations of pretentiousness.

The movie's too sleek and chilly and doesn't exactly call to mind a warm, romantic comedy.

Tykwer's script is structured so that the audience knows more about the characters' connections than they do. As each faces a midlife crisis/turning point, fate sometimes appears to be calling the shots.

Despite its fascinating and humorous moments, one can't help but be frustrated when at times it switches away to spiritual pretentiousness.

Tykwer can't seem to turn Hanna, Simon and Adam into real people. They feel like pawns in the service of a more cerebral diversion than the game of life.

Rois has moments of desperate urgency and depth, but Twyker's love of parallels is finally done in by artsy shots of the threesome au naturel against stark white backdrops.

The only legitimate connection that results from sex-driven deception and lack of communication is the marriage of your hand and forehead.

The art-house just keeps shining in 2011. Thank God, because Hollywood has been awful for the most part this year. "Drei" (Three) is the next… More
