Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nothing wrong with making an audience do some imaginative work, but hell, not all the work."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"An intimately scaled and emotionally vivid study of two young people forging a connection."
‑ Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
"The result is what every indie director strives for -- an emotionally true movie that looks like it cost about 10 times its actual budget."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"...Modra has been hard-wired with an earnestness that is, for the most part, impossible to resist..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"That the director's Slovakian relatives appear in background roles as members of Lina's extended clan gives MODRA the feeling of a home movie, but it's more accurate to say that this is personal filmmaking of a refreshingly modest stripe."
‑ Adam Nayman, eye WEEKLY
