Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A brief but haunting musical legacy is paid fittingly brief, lyrical tribute in veteran Dutch documentarian Jeroen Berkven's featurette A Skin Too Few."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A tender tribute to Nick Drake, the English singer-songwriter who died in 1974."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"May tell a sad story, but it tells it with so much artistry and to such emotional effect that the film is one of those rare works that resonates long after it's over."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"A moving testament to the power that a handful of songs continues to hold."
‑ Pam Grady, Reel.com
"It's an authoritative account of a singular talent."
‑ , Time Out
"Less life story than luxuriant mood bath."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"It's a lovely tribute to an extraordinary talent whose music might have been forgotten, and you really couldn't ask for a more beautiful soundtrack."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Despite being a bit flat at times and not taking us through all the highs and lows Drake experienced, the film succeeds by bringing us close to its subject, leaving us wanting more and not being afraid to be subtle."
‑ Cameron Meier, Orlando Weekly
"A short (48 minutes) and sweet tribute to the British folk singer."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"It's a haunting portrait of a young man who, while genuinely gifted and loved by friends and family, couldn't cope with the world."
‑ Joshua Katzman, Chicago Reader
"[Drake's] music and the picturesque footage of the English countryside dominate the documentary... creating an irresistible pull for Anglophiles."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"Count me in as a fan."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
