  1. Reviewed by: Carla Meyer
    It's the kind of small but amazing character study (think ``Marty'') that film lovers yearn for while griping that this type of picture no longer gets made. Turns out it does.
  2. Reviewed by: David Edelstein
    Beat by beat, scene by scene, times emotionally devastating.
  3. 90
    A fairy tale that presents love as a case of mutual enchantment, Two Family House is not only uniformly well acted, superbly designed, lovingly lit, and sensitively scored, it's as romantic as it is funny.
  4. A film of rare, delicate sensibility.
  5. Brimming over with affection and humanity, this memory drama about the destruction of one family and the birth of another is nostalgic in a good sense: funny, bittersweet, poignant.
  6. A charming, (mostly) briskly unsentimental love story, written, directed and acted with remarkable assurance.
  7. The sappy trappings that director Raymond De Felitta piles onto the burgeoning romance story line kills any spark that remains, despite the best efforts of the cast to keep it real.
