Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Any such themes are downplayed in this sentimental story, though Milani's teasingly ambiguous treatment of the young woman pays off handsomely in the end: without truly knowing her, the hero can never really know himself."

‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
