    Together is unabashedly about people who need people. The film's satiric skewering of '70s liberalism works because it feels emotionally authentic.
  2. 90
    One of the most pleasant foreign films of the year, a funny, graceful and immensely good-natured work.
  3. Moodysson captures exactly the preening narcissism and gumption of these frazzled would-be revolutionaries trying to wriggle out of their bourgeois straitjackets.
  4. It's a brilliant little microcosm of the '60s experience that, in a most gentle way, shows us how the counterculture probably was doomed from its inception.
  5. Reviewed by: David Edelstein
    A scruffy delight, a movie with the happiest sort of family values.
  6. Together's portrait of its social moment is right-on.
  7. 63
    A friendly movie, as scruffy and cozy as a woolen watch cap.

    Usually when a film is innately counterculture, it tries to at least appeal to that sort of audience. "Together" does exactly the opposite - it might be the harshest criticism of indivisualism I've seen on screen; it presents free choice as an empty idea that is rarely practiced by its supporters. Rather, it says that conventions exist for a reason: they're meant to prevent us from tearing each other apart. As bold as a message this is, the movie is likely to alienate its most avid supporters: people without an open mind. (Yes, that is an insult.) Expand
