  1. Traveling from the tragic to the comic, this multifaceted film is richly acted and imaginatively directed.
  2. 83
    It's a lovely film that suffers from an overdetermined structure and a reliance on a sensationalized plot line that, quixotically, is ignored for long periods of time.
  3. 75
    A story like Five Senses sounds like a gimmick, but Podeswa has a light touch when dealing with the senses and a sure one when telling his stories.
  4. It is a gimmick, rather than an idea worth exploring.
  5. 50
    It manages just to be pleasant.
  6. 40
    Comes so freighted with tragedy and sensitivity that I left dreaming of converting the abject misery of one and all to everyday unhappiness with free drinks and a raucous sing-along down at the pub.
  7. 30
    By interweaving several stories, the movie suffers from a peculiar multiplier effect: it deepens its shallowness.
