MADE IN HEAVEN is a wholly romantic fantasy with almost no contact with realism. It is essentially a genre picture on the order of HERE COMES MR. JORDAN; HEAVEN CAN WAIT; or ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER in which characters move freely from Heaven to Earth, falling into a seemingly impossible love

with another soul. MADE IN HEAVEN concerns two souls (Timothy Hutton, Kelly McGillis) who fall in love in Heaven, are separated, and eventually reunite on Earth. Looking more like an Americanized homage to the spirit of Jean Cocteau or the French New Wave, MADE IN HEAVEN is both technically

playful and poetically romantic. Director Alan Rudolph concentrates on the characters and his own imagination. Structured in a nontraditional manner and broken into tableaux that span 50 years, the film is held together by the wonderful performances of Hutton and McGillis. Hutton does his best

work since ORDINARY PEOPLE, McGillis fulfills the promise of WITNESS, and together they become a pure, heavenly couple looking as if they were destined to be together forever. One familiar face goes uncredited--Ellen Barkin as evil incarnate; as does one unfamiliar face, hiding behind extensive

makeup--Debra Winger as Heaven's chief administrator, Emmett. As inventive as MADE IN HEAVEN is, however, it occasionally falters and never completely comes together.
