I was feeling very sleeeepy...drifting deeper and deeper...
20 April 2004 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Seventh Heaven" is a subtitled French dud which focuses on a young wife and mother who see a therapist for some neurotic tendencies such as kleptomania, frigidity, dyspenia, etc. He attempts to heal her through feng shui (yeah, right) and hypnosis while her husband reacts. This film is well crafted but not very interesting. If it has a problem, it is simply the lackadaisical zombiesque approach to drama and the absence of story arc. A sort of flat fizzling dud, "Seventh Heaven" lacks the passion its subject, offers no resolution, expects us to buy into some hokey hypnotherapist characters, and doesn't have much of a story to tell. In a word...unsatisfying. (C+)
