Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Softly sensuous from afar, but rather flighty on closer acquaintance, My Beautiful Girl, Mari is an extremely oblique animated feature that may, in fact, be about very little at all."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Visually striking but dramatically confusing animated feature from Korea."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"While familial subplots, schoolyard showdowns and a climactic sea storm feel somewhat detached from the narrative, the deep sense of longing that underlies this sweet-natured tale rings true."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Lee Sung-gang's exquisite tale of childhood remembrance and imagination is... a patient fantasy painted in swaths of color..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
