Succeeds as a vivid video album of the metropolis at the millennium.

Robert Downey Sr.'s terrific Ritten house Square made me want to move to Philadelphia. Thankfully, the feeling quickly passed.

There are certainly more unpleasant ways to spend an hour and a half, but it's unlikely that Rittenhouse Square will generate much interest outside Philadelphia.

Lewis Beale
Film Journal International

What comes across is how important open spaces like this are to urban dwellers, how they enhance quality of life and become citified versions of village squares.

A good stroll inside your nearest city park would provide a more edifying experience.
