Reviews

Inspired by the haunting music of composer Franz Liszt, Liebestraum is an ominous tale of lust, jealousy and murder. Award-winning writer/director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) brilliantly weaves a smouldering blend of sex, death and music into a satisfyingly dark, sophisticated, seductive and romantic thriller.

What begins as a passionate crusade to save a landmark building turns into a passionate love affair with dire consequences. Nick (Kevin Anderson), a professor of architecture who’s come home to visit his dying mother (Kim Novak), knows he must preserve a cast-iron building marked for demolition by Paul (Bill Pullman), a ruthless developer and former friend. But when he falls for Paul’s wife, Jane (Pamela Gidley), Nick unwittingly tempts fate with his own life. For buried within the walls of the landmark lies a dark secret – a murderous history which is linked to Nick and now may find him as its next victim!

I can remember seeing this film on its first release at a multiplex and wanting to see it again a few days later but discovering that the complex had withdrawn the film because no one was paying to see it.That sums it up really.You will either love or loathe this film.There is no middle ground. This is an art house film with edge. A real thinking persons film. Beautifully directed with outstanding performances from the cast. The whore house scene is one of my favourite scenes from any film.If you enjoy popular mainstream hollywood flicks well dont bother with Liebestraum as it will certainly fail to light your candle. If however you enjoy alternative cinema then this gem of a movie illustrates how a now celebrated director cut his teeth...............Beamish Tim

This is certainly compelling, dark, intelligent and unsettling. Well worth watching.

An architecture professor comes to a strange town to visit his dying mother. He falls in with an old friend, who is demolishing a cast iron department store, that was the scene of a crime of passion before it was sealed up. He starts an affair with his friend's waif-like wife. Throw in copious amounts of Twin Peaks strangeness and serve well chilled.

The film is engaging and unexpected, with an ominous sense that a previous love triangle is repeating itself. Pamela Gidley is outstanding as the somewhat remote love object. The film is peppered with great lines, and some very memorable scenes.

Having said all that, the ending remains pretty inscrutable, I'm not sure exactly what was going on by the end, neither was my wife, and checking out iMDB interpretations seems to vary. Initially appealing explanations seem to fall apart.

Thought-provoking and very watchable, I've marked it down to four stars as it never quiet ties up all the loose ends, while leaving you with the frustrating feeling that you're just not quite smart enough to get it.

This film has stayed in my memory ever since I first saw it on its original release. At first I thought this might have been simply explained by the undoubted charms of Ms. Gidney but I think it was more than that. It has a strange, haunting quality that I find difficult to explain except with the use of the term "American Gothic".
Unlike some of its champions, I would not claim it to be a masterpiece and In many ways it's a bit of a mess, especially the unsatisfactory ending, but there's something about it that won't go away. Perhaps the clue is in the title, like a piece of music, one should attempt to over explain it but rather simply enjoy its pleasures?
Rather like a wine taster, if you will excuse the pretention, I founds hints of Vertigo, David Lynch and even The Shining, and I'm sure others will find different notes.
In many ways, a quintessential cult film that I urge everyone to try, expecially at these rock-bottom prices. It might suprise you. Flawed, but fascinating.

This Mike Figgis potboiler is a thriller often half-done. It has a tasty, competent leading man in Kevin Anderson, intriguing appearances by Kim Novak and Bill Pullman, but it just doesn't get off the ground, being too damn similar to late-night TV movies, though at least the acting and photography set it apart slightly.

Kevin is an architect coming home to visit his ailing mother, who also wants to stop a certain building being pulled down by a land developer he used to be pals with. For whatever reason he gets involved with the man's wife and comes near to a dark secret the building has kept till now. Mike Figgis isn't the trul great film maker he should be and only his movie 'Timecode'-with fullscreen spilt 4 ways throughout the whole running time-so keep your eyes about you!-is his masterpiece.

I got this hoping it would be good after reading the description, but it failed to fly so it must fly to someone else me thinks.

I loved mostly movies I watched. Some one I saw twice in order to be acounted with the meaning as well as the message of the story. As matter of fact, before ordering the picture I read something about it.
