Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Deserves all the attention it can get."
‑ Natasha Senjanovic, Hollywood Reporter
"The Here and There script is borderline clichéd, and it makes getting a US visa seem way too easy."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"A quietly amusing minimalist tale of a grouch who finds he's still capable of pleasure."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"Sometimes aimlessness is a legitimate subject (like in The Station Agent) and sometimes it's an excuse for a director to lazily slap together a movie that he hasn't thought much about."
‑ Adam Lippe,
"Lungulov's touch is delicate, even piercingly so, and his direction of actors, especially Thornton and Karanovic, is beautifully nuanced."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The big question isn't whether middle-aged romance will bloom, but rather, how much sub-Jarmusch deadpan humor and pathos can you take?"
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"In a way, the fact that the grey, austere Serbian city is such an odd choice for the middle-age romance "Here and There" is one of the film's charms."
‑ Rob Thomas, Wisconsin State Journal
"Enjoyable and accomplished."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"In the end, the film has more than a few moments that linger: like slivovitz, it sneaks up on you."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"There's pleasure in watching the conceit unfold, which is sweetened by an unexpectedly poignant payoff."
‑ Eric Hynes, Village Voice
"Although teetering on the brink of soppiness in places, and treading a well-worn path, the soft-in-the-middle script is lifted immeasurably by towering performances."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Here and There feels exactly like an amateur effort from a first-time director."
‑ Christian Blauvelt, Slant Magazine
