Dry but occasionally interesting independent feature.

Window to the Movies

This and other movies like it seem to say love is complicated and can cause much misery, but that never strikes me as insightful.

Fittingly probing, sensual, mysterious and raw. Byler's exposition is vastly taut, revealing, and firmly perceptive. Charlotte Sometimes radiates with invigorating absorption

Though the themes aren't exactly groundbreaking, they're executed skillfully enough to make the movie well worth seeing - for fans of the genre, at any rate.

The film's nervous reticence makes it both precious and a little unwieldy, like a matchstick palace built on a subway platform.

As an antidote to talky American indies involving twentysomething romantic conundrums, Charlotte Sometimes hits just the right note.

Charlotte Sometimes nails the subtle psychotic element that circles budding relationships.

The foursome of actors, especially actresses Yuan and Kim, fill their portrayals with a smoldering, sometimes desperate, yearning.

Sometimes engaging, sometimes amusing and ultimately surprising.

An erotic mystery of sorts, the film works because it's laconic rather than talky and its actors are all up for the material.

It features plenty of hushed moments that suggest the presence of nuances that never really emerge from its murky tone.

A smartly made, hedonistic spectacle of alluring, nubile characters, sun-warmed narcissism and breathtaking color.

It's a hushed work of restrained emotions, elliptical storytelling and spare dialogue, peopled with smart, authentic characters who have drawn you into their lives before you know it.

Whether or not it's a pose, the film's poised reticence is refreshing in context -- a rebuke to the contemporary crop of blabbermouthed American indies.

San Diego Union-Tribune

Capably shot and acted, with a fine feel for loneliness, Eric Byler's film is a mood sonata with little concern about being Asian; it is only PC in the sense of 'painfully coy.'
