Perhaps the characters are a bit underwritten, but this is a feel good film that is not wildly ambitious.
Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
Whimsical Australian fable with the soul of a tourist brochure.
Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Wendy Hughes and Chris Haywood are good in the lead roles but the supporting characters -- an assortment of bubbly tourists and small-town eccentrics -- just aren't original or interesting enough.

It's not designed to leave audiences rolling in the aisles, but it will put a smile on your face and make its way into your heart.

The MacRaes direct with a sure enough hand for The View From Greenhaven to feel like an accomplished debut.
Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
The gentle toughness of the subject is perhaps deceptive, as the Macrae brothers embark on a story about a man who has shut down three decades ago and has just about used up all the leeway his family is prepared to give him.
Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
I loved every minute of this instantly involving film in which our hearts smile, weep and turn corners just like the train that carries its passengers to its mystery destination.
