  1. A vital, sexy and touching movie that goes to the heart of what human caring is all about.
  2. With the filmmaking techniques pared to the bone, it is left to the actors to bring the scenes alive - and they do, often brilliantly.
  3. The brusque realism of Kragh-Jacobsen's style -- his careful suppression of style -- allows a surprising sweetness to emerge.
  4. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Both enjoyably lighthearted and proof that even the most stridently purist approach to filmmaking can produce a cliched romantic comedy.
  5. Reviewed by: David Edelstein

    Material so utterly conventional that you can predict every plot turn after the first half-hour.
