  1. Without ever dipping into indignity among wet, half-naked men, Shower sparkles with joy.
  2. The beauties of Shower lie in its human observation, in its funny interplay, candor, lusty acting and hearty simplicity - and also in its warm imagery and the fascinating symbolic use it makes of water.
  3. It's a beautifully crafted, almost perfectly sustained little drama that skillfully makes a subtle, bittersweet point.
  4. 75
    Shower is also a comedy -- but it's the movie's melancholy streak that is its strongest asset.
  5. Told in a leisurely though concise 92 minutes, Shower is a purifying and refreshing spray of hope that family and lifestyle differences can be reconciled. Lovely.
  6. Reviewed by: Robert Horton

    There's something thin about the picture-both in its ideas and its visual texture.
  7. This gentle, slow-moving film contains some charming sequences but no new insights into the pleasures and burdens of family.
