  1. A lovely little coming-of-age story, this Taiwanese romance was directed by Chih-Yen Yee with a skillful subtlety enhanced by his young cast.
  2. 75
    The sensitive subject matter is handled discreetly by writer-director Chin-yen Yee, who never lets the story sink into exploitation or finger-pointing.
  3. 70
    Set largely in empty public spaces late at night, Blue Gate Crossing supplements its slender narrative with disarming performances and plangent atmosphere.
  4. Reviewed by: Frank Scheck

    Resembling a short story more than a narrative feature, the film tells its slender story in leisurely fashion, relying more on mood and atmosphere than dialogue or character development.
  5. Blue Gate Crossing is 85 minutes of wistful gloom.
  6. Reviewed by: Derek Elley

    High on charm but extremely low on content, Blue Gate Crossing is a half-hour short stretched to feature length.
