comparison with Sokurow:cinemavenire
From the very start of the film, you are struck by its visual imagination,
hinting at an entire life lived drowning underwater. (...) An outstanding
example of a film which is uncompromising in its vision, Seven Heavens
will leave you confused, maybe unsatisfied but with a sense of having
experienced a worthwhile journey - just like a dream.eyeforfilm
a german review:
Seven Heavens is a rare experience in german cinema. A risky,
sad, angry film exploring the yet Unknown and exciting. A stroke
of luck for german independent filmmaking
Dream-like journey into the subconscious; a crossroads
betweeen "Mulholland Drive" and "Last Year at Marienbad".
A dark Masterpiece. (...)Busch´s Feature
offers a mesmerising journey, for those brave enough to take it:
it´s hallucinogenic visuals (reminiscent of Sokurov) and
ambiguous narrative, suggestive of a realm where time is conditional,
perception unreliable, and desire the only constant. Edinburgh
A work on the basic elements water and blood, begins with an
hommage to Atalante of Jean Vigo, then finding a very personal
poetry of visual darkness. The act of seeing itself is emphasized
through a hypnotizing waving movement, a constant flow of images.
This "invisibility" of images is a chiffre for the darkness within
memory (...) in this game between past and present time Busch
denies the possibility of luck for his protagonists: everything
is reduced to pain, hurt, blood, masturbation, suppressed feelings
(...) There is little hope in this film which has the suggestive
moving power of a dream providing us with a visual experience
far more intense than ever seen before.
The construction of a surreal present makes Seven Heavens a film
about dream and perverted longing. A dark masterpiece.
A rare cinematografic experience (...) The film had physicals
effect on some people. In the discussion afterwards they described
it as like the feeling of drowning (...)A visually overwhealming
film, with its fragmeted way of story telling a challenge for
the audience, a „mulholland drive“ with endless repetitions,
yet a film you won´t forget easily.
