    Being Human is just that, and it's a profound delight. [06 May 1994]
  2. Set against lovely verdant scenery but structured as a series of rambling vignettes, the stories in Being Human don't entirely mesh.
  3. Boston Globe

    Being Human isn't totally devoid of the gentle Forsyth magic. But it doesn't have nearly enough of it. Even Williams can do only so much with an assignment that calls for him to mostly stand around looking bummed out - in quintuplicate. [06 May 1994]
  4. 38
    For all of its existential posturing, Being Human ends up being a rather shallow motion picture.
  5. Chicago Tribune

    A sincere but clumsy attempt to capture the pain of a man trying to cope with loss and divorce through the ages. [06 May 1994]
  6. 20
    There are atmospheric shots of billowing thunder clouds, priests on cliff tops, bloody stigmata and moody eclipses, but it all amounts to nothing.
  7. Los Angeles Times
    Reviewed by: Kenneth Turan
    Misconceived, misguided and a completely miserable viewing experience, this is one to avoid at all costs and for all time. [06 May 1994]
