The Press Reviews

  • Persistent sentimentality - manifested most in the music score by A.R. Rahman - undercuts "Beyond the Clouds" at almost every turn. Full Review

  • Keeping a step ahead of melodrama is a convincing cast. Full Review

  • The famed director's take on redemption is fleshed out by strong performances to make Beyond the Clouds another notable entry in his filmography. Full Review

  • As it gives a voice to the voiceless and making a case for the people whose poverty denies them justice, it's perhaps forgivable that the film labours its point a little stridently at times. Full Review

  • What this brightly painted film lacks in streetwise authenticity is balanced by its righteous strength of feeling. Full Review

  • It's abruptly edited at times and the emotions tend towards the histrionic, especially when pumped up by AR Rahman's lush score. Yet Majidi marshals it all with verve...Bold and often beautiful. Full Review

  • Beyond the Clouds is a story about love, family and finding the two in unexpected places. That Majidi manages to tell this story in a country unlike his own - and tell it well - is a testament to its universal strength. Full Review
