    The film is rightfully carried by Nico and Dani and under Gay's artful helmsmanship it's carried with remarkable sympathy and believability.
  2. Touching, funny, unflinching and true.
  3. While Nico and Dani presents itself as a no-frills coming-of-age tale, its soundtrack seems lifted from a teen comedy like "American Pie."
  4. 70
    Nico and Dani merely retells a not uncommon tale without significantly enriching it. It's just too familiar to play as poignantly as it would like to.

    Breezy, surprisingly poignant Spanish film.
  6. The acting is amiable but the story isn't much deeper than the callow main characters.
  7. 20
    Everyone will be indifferent, as indifferent and uncaring as the characters the film portrays.
