Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mr. Zhang, whose wide-screen compositions have an unfussy elegance, mostly manages his balancing act. His measured style gives the film a steady-as-she-goes ballast even as it follows impulsive, unsettled lives."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"Zhang's message is universal: whether in Beijing, London or Edinburgh, one should turn to friends in times of adversity."
‑ Robin Ford Coron, The List
"In despair at a rock club, San Bao tries to eat a drinking glass. Later, in his hospital room, his bandaged mouth becomes a nice visual metaphor for the silencing of the unmonied, the voicelessness of the dispossessed."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Some of the film's ragged plot threads could've been snipped...but a solid cast brings life to a familiar experience halfway around the world."
‑ Jamie S. Rich, Oregonian
