Critic Consensus: Whether as a story of one couple's quixotic quest or simply a stunning collection of nature footage, Fire of Love burns bright.

Movie Info

Fire of Love tells the story of two French lovers, Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of our planet, while simultaneously capturing the most explosive volcano imagery ever recorded. Along the way, they changed our understanding of the natural world, and saved tens of thousands of lives. Previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs reveal the birth of modern volcanology through an unlikely lens -- the love of its two pioneers.

With its quirky New Wave-adjacent cadences, Sara Dosa's sizzling Fire of Love proves that no one can narrate a fiery romance better than Miranda July's airily ethereal voice.

This has to be one of the most heartwarming movies about scientists ever made, especially as it always honors the red-hot nature in their shared passion.

It's ethereal, elliptical in its construction and eerily beautiful; not even Miranda July's oft-kilter narration can break the spell.

Its lingering power, however, is not just the spectacle but also the thrilling intimacy of its subjects, whose eccentric, danger-seeking romance feels drawn straight out of Hollywood myth.

The dangerous nature of their work starts to creep into the narrative, and by the end, this adorable love story has become a meditation on humanity's smallness in the face of the Earth's tectonic plates.

Commits to a mad embrace of destiny, with eye-searing archival footage and an appreciation of the ineffability of devotion.
