"The stolen-authorship premise is popular ... But "Lila, Lila" fails to make witty use of the idea."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
"Contrived and somewhat dull, but the talented Daniel Brühl's performance provides much-needed genuine poignancy and charisma."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

‑ Danny King, Village Voice

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
