Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A comedy of crusty exterior and soft heart."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"A big-hearted, generous movie that never patronizes the audience."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"effortlessly poetic"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"The film soars on the strength of its own eagerness to display goodwill toward all its characters."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Moodysson is an observant filmmaker, and best of all, sees the many sides of human personality that make people by turns maddening, exciting and sympathetic."
‑ Jason Clark, Matinee Magazine
"Quite bright in its fashion and often singularly comic."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"The best thing about Together ... is the way it snatches idealism back from the brink of life-smothering orthodoxy."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
". Intensely humane and energetically humorous, Together is a film for film lovers and for anyone interested in human nature."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"From the bare bones of the plot, it would be easy to mistake "Together" for a sexy romp. Moodysson has more on his mind than that, however."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The joys -- and pitfalls -- of communal living in the 1970s are rendered with a buoyant immediacy and an ironic accuracy."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"A comedy of manners set in the hippie heyday of 1975."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Tinged with delicate nostalgia."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The film's supposed status as a feel-good flick originates from its ability to remind us that we're never alone in our failings."
‑ Andrew Howe,
"There's nary a dull moment in this comedy. The dramatic resonance that emerges is especially lovely for having arrived so pleasantly."
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"It's all very cozy and laid back, set to a pleasantly dorky soundtrack of '70s Swedish pop."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
