    A civilized delight.
  2. All of this romantic back and forth unfolds gradually and in charming ensemble style. As the characters think about seducing each other, as they inevitably complicate their lives without being able to help themselves, the film is simultaneously seducing us.
  3. 80
    It's the dialogue -- wisecracking and wistful in equal measure -- that plays out the tyrannical illogic of romantic attraction, and so endears us to this ensemble of bruised souls that when, as in life, not everyone gets what they have come to deserve, it feels, as in life, like an injustice.
  4. The entire cast is marvelous and capable of conveying continents of emotion with a furtive smile or arched brow.
  5. 75
    Nothing overly dramatic happens during the course of The Taste of Others but the characters prove to be engaging and their quite real human emotions are enough to carry it.
  6. For everyone who has ever asked, "What on earth do they see in each other?"
  7. 60
    A pleasant time-passer.
