  1. 80
    Exchanges overheard in bars, crisp dialogue between characters and a wistful tone underscore both modern isolation and the age-old need for connection.
  2. Most important, Hush! is like Chinese director Stanley Kwan's recent "Lan Yu" in that a gay romance becomes but a starting point for an all-encompassing view of human behavior.
  3. 70
    Japanese director Ryosuke Hashiguchi ("Like Grains of Sand") enriches his rendition with melancholic ambivalence, sociological specificity, and a knack for delicate epiphany.
  4. 63
    Overlong but telling look at three young misfits.
  5. Rambling, occasionally very funny reflection on the meaning of family in contemporary Japan.
  6. Though the director takes a thoughtful approach to the material, mixing humor and poignancy, he undercuts our sympathy considerably by dragging things out to an inexplicably indulgent degree.
  7. A feel-good movie that doesn't give you enough to feel good about.
