An estranged couple are brought back together as they run for their lives in a future world where science as well as emotions have gone haywire in this sci-fi drama from director Thomas Vinterberg. In the year 2021, the world seems to have become a very strange place; an unexplained ailment is causing children to drop dead on the streets of New York, ice storms and floods strike major cities without notice, summer is marked by periodic snowfalls, and a strange hole has appeared in the Ugandan sky that causes people to loose the grip of gravity and drift off into space. In the midst of all this, internationally known figure skater Elena (Claire Danes) is getting divorced from her husband John (Joaquin Phoenix) after an 18-month separation. John has arrived in New York City to have Elena sign the divorce papers, but after finally making his way through her entourage, he discovers her to be unhappy and out of sorts, and she asks him to stay. John soon learns that Elena and her staff have a secret -- David (Alun Armstrong), her manager, has had Elena cloned, and now there are three duplicates of her to stand in if she should be killed or injured. John's discovery puts both him and Elena in grave danger, and they are soon on the run from David and his underlings. Meanwhile, Marciello (Sean Penn) ponders the unstable state of the world as he flies from one place to another after a heroic dose of pills designed to combat the fear of flying. It's All About Love received its North American premier at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Beautiful and haunting by TlovesJ April 3, 2008 - 6:53 PM PDT

Reviews of this movie weren't very good and according to the Wikipedia entry, even the stars distanced themselves from it, but I found this movie very enjoyable, haunting, and beautiful. It does move slowly and the love-story is unconventional. It definitely could have been done better. The director supposedly took 5 years to make it and maybe he suffered from working on it TOO LONG to realize what should be changed and what shouldn't. But overall, it was good enough that I bought it (previously viewed). If you liked The Fountain with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz and directed by Darren Aronofsky, then you will probably enjoy It's All About Time.
