Critic Reviews

  1. And who would have guessed that, in this age of excess and one-upmanship, when bigger is always better, the year's most romantic screen kiss would last a mere two seconds.
  2. 75
    A disarming Spanish dramedy of late-life love, speaks a universal language.
  3. Sentimental, formulaic, predictable and shamelessly manipulative, Marcos Carnevale’s tale of late-life love is also genuinely heartbreaking and heartening.
  4. 75
    Though recalling a truckload of antecedents, "Harold and Maude" and "Sweet November" among them, Elsa & Fred manages enough fresh touches and performance subtleties to stand alone as an irresistible, bittersweet comedy.
  5. Worth seeing just to admire how Argentine writer-director Marcos Carnevale avoids so much as a whiff of condescension.
  6. 63
    A sweet but inconsequential romantic comedy.
