Cate Blanchett, Giovanni Ribisi.
Heaven was to be the first part of a trilogy by the late Polish director Kristov Kieslowski called Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell. Kieslowski, however, died in 1996 and the script was given to Tykwer. A man dies a drug related death and the grieving widow takes matters into her own hands. Her actions cause unforeseen tragedy but during the ensuing investigation love kindles anew. Is the finding of love enough to overturn the unworthiness of its foundation? And, once found, is it enough to justify the means? What would you be willing to risk for love?
