Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"John Lennon and his manager Epstein's trip to Barcelona is the only factual element in Munch's original film, an evocative meditation on the friendship between two men who could not have been more different."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Ever wondered what might have happened when John Lennon and his manager Brian Epstein spent four days together in Barcelona, just before the Beatles hit it big? Me neither."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

‑ David Nusair, Apollo Guide
"Interesting, but flawed."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
