After a rough break-up, Elizabeth sets out on a journey across America, leaving behind a life of memories, a dream and a soulful new friend; a cafe owner--all while in search of something to mend her broken heart.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] flaky disaster."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Fans of Chinese director Wong Kar Wai's dreamy, romantic films will find My Blueberry Nights a luscious treat, although newcomers to his world of sensuous longing will no doubt wonder what all the fuss is about."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The too-neat screenplay doesn't allow for nearly as much improvisation as Wong's earlier Hong Kong reveries, but this impressionistic canvas is still profoundly sensuous and floridly vulnerable"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"It's a middling sort of experience at the movies."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"[Norah Jones] is a blank presence -- she can't give the film the heart or soul it needs."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"The casting problem starts with the movie's lead, Norah Jones."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The bad news about My Blueberry Nights is that it feels like an exaggeration to call it an actual movie."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Three years after 2046, Wong Kar-wai is not in love any more--and I for one am happy for him."
‑ Rob Nelson, Boston Phoenix
"That's another thing about Wong: even when you're not quite sure what he's trying to say, or if he actually has anything to say, you get your money back in the beauty with which he says it."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"Saccharine, cliched, groaningly predictable and -- in short -- utterly abysmal."
‑ Mark Demetrius, FILMINK (Australia)
"It's not the pie that is meant to make this watchable, it is Wai's greatest gift, observing people, little slices of life in New York, Memphis or Nevada. Unfortunately in this case, those slices don't add up to a meal, or even dessert."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Only in flashes does Wong Kar-Wai let you forget about the relentless, meticulous beauty long enough to lose yourself inside it."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"a languorously slow-baked affair"
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"El director de Con Šnimo de amar y 2046 se traslada con ťxito a Estados Unidos, donde filma una historia de amor sugestiva, Ūntima y encantadora."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"A calorie-free snack masquerading as a substantial meal."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Daily Telegraph (Australia)
