Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The action is compelling, the film good looking, the acting first rate and the circumstances -- people from neglected nations in an alienating if not hostile urban landscape -- is moving."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Cool, mysterious and defiantly foreign, the mournful thriller Love plays out on the immigrant fringes of an indifferent New York City."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The film is an atmospheric and complex thriller that, while not quite living up to its thematic ambitions, more than sustains interest along the way."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A multi-perspectival film vastly superior to Crash, Vladan Nikolic's dynamic thriller Love reinvigorates a stale cinematic format and imparts a compelling message all without a single head-on collision."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"The story unfolds in nonlinear fashion, with the same events being shown several times, from different perspectives. The concept works especially well with the murder spree that sets up the movie."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Serbian cinematographer Vladimir Subotic's photography transforms New York's outlying neighborhoods and anonymous streets into a weather-beaten dreamscape suffused with mystery, danger and the hope of heaven."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
