Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you don't mind a bit of treacle in your cinematic cultural-exchange program, The Overture will warm you inside and out."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"... a combination of gee-whiz reverence and cheesy melodrama..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A by-the-numbers, simple tale that pulls out all the cliched melodramatic stops when it should be exploring an obviously fascinating character in Thai history."
‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film probably loses some of its effect when it is brought to a Western culture, but it is still captivating."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"the music strikes to the very core just what it means to be human"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
