SYNOPSIS

Turin, Italy: Philippa Paccard, deeply disappointed by the police's lax investigation following her husband's drug death, places a bomb in the dealer's cover office. Unfortunately, the bomb goes off unplanned and kills four innocent people. Philippa is arrested and questioned about her (supposedly terroristic) motives. When she hears about her plan going awry, she collapses. Filippo, the official translator, believes in her innocence, and conceives a plan for her escape. While Philippa does not want to elude the justice she deserves for the four innocent deaths, Filippo discovers he fell in love with the beautiful woman. Finally, the unequal lovers end up as fugitives from justice - but for how long?
Julian Reischl


From the late master filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski comes 'Heaven', the first installment of a trilogy. Just as Steven Spielberg directed Stanley Kubrick's 'A.I.', Tom Twyker (director of 'Run Lola Run') helms this Kieslowski tale about love, retribution and redemption. Devastated by her husband's death from a drug overdose, Philippa (played by Cate Blanchett), a British teacher living in Turin, Italy, tries to bring justice to the biggest drug dealer in Turin when the local police ignore her information about him. In building a home-made bomb and setting off a plan that fails miserably, her status changes from young widow to that of a criminal in custody. Young police officer Filipo (Giovanni Ribisi)descends into Philippa's life, changing her bleak outlook on existence into one in search of tranquility among corruption, as they become unlikely soul mates and lovers.
