  1. Diderot's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    One of the truly great Hollywood romances. Everything after the war begins is a little rushed, but the build-up is delightful. Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell make for a perfect, idealized proletariat couple.

  2. RoRoRoro's rating of the film 7th Heaven

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    Beautiful. Also see LUCKY STAR!

  4. José Neves's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    Cinematography by Ernest Palmer and Joseph A. Valentine. "Desire" list. Gaynor and Farrell # 1, a truly unforgettable couple. Farrell, the most modern of the silent cinema heartthrobs, an immaculate face and body at the service of a romantic imagery. Perfection under Borzage's wise eye.

  5. Byron Brubaker's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    By the time the Oscars started, narrative movies had already been around for roughly two decades. And this was the last big year for silent pictures. This film impressed me because the acting is less over-the-top than earlier silents, the story is good, and the camera work and use of tints to suggest different locations and emotions made for visual interest.

  6. Simon So's rating of the film 7th Heaven

  7. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    It could be a second Sunrise but after the war sequence, movie is getting slower. and the final: She answers "ok, to make a fresh start" to a new proposal after learned that she is now a widow. Happy (!) ending is not impressive in that moment. then already movie ends. Second half kills the movie. Sadly.

  8. tony1990's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    Deeply moving. Janet Gaynor can say so much with the subtlest of gestures. I don't believe anyone was more deserving of that first Academy Award for Best Actress than her. A complimentary companion piece to another great 1927 feature, "Sunrise." While one dazzles, the other breathes.

  9. Dave's rating of the film 7th Heaven

    One of the great love stories in all of American cinema and a silent gem from Frank Borzage. One of the finest of the era, in my opinion.

    Gaynor's face > Falconetti's face
