5.0 Eden

Your Vote :

Eden is an affecting trip into the electronic dance movement in Paris whose rhythms echo its textures and feeling. Based on the experiences of Hansen-Love's brother Sven, the film follows Paul, a teenager in the underground scene of early-nineties Paris. Rave parties dominate that culture, but he's drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago's garage house. He forms a DJ collective named Cheers, and together he and his friends plunge into the ephemeral nightlife of sex, drugs, and endless music. (C) Broadgreen

    If the result feels anesthetized, that could be seen as a tribute to the music, which remains ecstatically dull; when you are lost in it, the movie implies, the rest of life - and even time itself - can pass you by.

    Hansen-Love is an assured and naturally empathetic director who specializes in making us care more about her characters than seems likely at the outset.

    I think the triumph of the film itself is its centrifugal force, its dispersed palette, its constant movement away from a center - the reverse direction of those records on Paul's Technics turntable.

    An intimate epic to sink into; it uses the unchanging age of its actors, whose characters stubbornly resist changing for two decades, as a melancholy commentary on the maturation process.

    The years in this movie don't really amount to much. It's stuck between disco shallowness and grown-up wisdom - like a turntable, it's spinning endlessly.

    A subtle portrait of an EDM Adam, Eden is neither a star-is-born fable nor a soul-is-lost parable.

    Delicate, lifelike filmmaking .

    The camerawork is so fluid and the settings so brimming with detail that one feels washed away by the film, recognizing the hero's decline only when he does-that is, too late.

    Even if you know nothing about techno, let alone garage, Hansen-Love's exploration of the ways music can nourish you or swallow you whole is instantly, perhaps painfully, recognizable.

    Perceptive and compassionate, "Eden" recognizes how the thrill of artistic freedom can curdle in the heat of the marketplace and the demands of daily life. Yet the movie's refusal to foster regret, or have Paul repudiate his passion, is telling.

    At one point, Paul describes his music as "somewhere between euphoria and melancholy," which is also an apt description of Eden itself.

    Hansen-Love, who co-wrote the script along with her former-DJ brother Sven, zeroes in on the signature experiences of '90s club life with expert precision.

    A viewer is always aware that they are being shown a place and an era, which helps explain how Eden manages the tricky business of being a movie that is overtly about lost time, but which unfolds chronologically, without as much as a flashback.

  • Jon Frosch Hollywood Reporter

    Eden is indeed as low-key as anything Hansen-Love has done, though it conveys a sense of risk that feels new for her - both in the scope of the story and in specific choices she makes.
