Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some will find it a bit muted, but those attuned to the quiet desolation of an Antonioni or Hou Hsiao-Hsien will find much to admire. A welcome discovery."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"It's all rather familiar but well done."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
‑ Rebecca Ellis, Little White Lies
"As a study of cultural ennui, it makes Lost In Translation look like an action movie."
‑ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
"This artsy romancer is well performed but suffers from muddled, meandering plotting."
‑ Richard Kuipers, Variety
"An enjoyable Thai drama with a poignant message, Hi-So has a notable script and some admirable performances, but the slow pacing and lack of spark in the second act can make it a little arduous to watch."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
"For most of its seemingly interminable running time the bored-looking protagonist sits in his apartment possibly thinking about something or nothing."
‑ Miles Fielder, The List
""Hi-So" has ideas but no place pressing to go."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"An oddly cleansing, even affirming experience."
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"Assarat's freeform film is sometimes tantalising if noodle-baking stuff. If you can divine its meaning, take the rest of the year off."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
