  1. Without ever dipping into indignity among wet, half-naked men, Shower sparkles with joy.
  2. Superbly acted, cleverly written, sensitively directed.
  3. 100
    Comes as close to perfect as any movie I've seen lately.
  4. 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.
  5. Intimate, deeply affecting family drama.
  6. A warm-hearted valentine to old traditions in China that are being obliterated by modern - and admittedly more efficient - technology.
  7. It's a beautifully crafted, almost perfectly sustained little drama that skillfully makes a subtle, bittersweet point.
  8. 83
    A lovely film that requires a leisurely sit to think, Shower is not so much a shower as a bath, and a refreshing one at that.
