Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Here, the background of grief helps: it deepens the characterisation, so that the emotion feels earned. Yet there is sentimentality here, leavened by Menahemi's understated humour and sense of purpose."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"You don't want to examine the contrivances of plot too closely but all the strands come together in a tense and emotionally satisfying climax. This is a perfect film for audiences who want to avoid confronting cinema."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"It has warmth and real insight."
‑ Julie Rigg, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"It's an enjoyable feel-good story that builds up slowly but delivers plenty of emotional zing with a joyous pay-off that takes us as high as the plane that travels from Tel Aviv to Beijing."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"By the time the film reaches its lump-in-the-throat conclusion, you'll be glad to have discovered this touching and universal story."
‑ Dov Kornits, FILMINK (Australia)
