Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The vision of Intimate Stories is amusingly warm-hearted without being cloying or sentimental; the landscape may be harsh, but the performances are inviting."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"While the Argentine filmmaker takes his time, his film isn't tedious."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Bathed in chilly winter air with a fragrance of hot coffee, the film moves at an unhurried pace, taking in the sights and sounds of the various pit stops, and essentially enjoying itself."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Sorin's charming road comedy captures the humanity of small-town dreamers."
‑ Bill White, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Feels like a campfire yarn bereft of the giant, climactic payoff, instead maintaining a relaxed, almost demure tone of destiny-touched hopefulness"
‑ Nick Schager, Filmcritic.com
"This comic Argentine road movie shows human nature at its most generous."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Has no profound statements to make, but it does provide warm and fuzzy comfort."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"It's the surprising but effective payoff to Don Justo's journey that has the most emotional pull, which is due in no small part to newcomer Benedicti's performance."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Warm and frequently very funny, Argentine director Carlos Sorin's third feature weaves together three story lines into one road-tripping adventure that's a joy ride from beginning to end."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Quiet and unpretentious, the film's humanism isn't confrontational exactly but it's unmistakable nonetheless."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Like the performances, the movie is a small-scale feat of naturalism."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"As stripped down as its title, this gentle Argentinian road movie makes much out of very little."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Vacuous road movie in which vacant characters receive rewards that far outweigh their uninspired goals."
‑ Matthew Smith, Film Journal International
"Gentle, humanistic, delicious."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
