Lawrence Levine should earn some attention with this agreeable indie comedy.

Wisely observant of human nature as it bounces between the leads, Gabi evokes Woody Allen with a more generous heart (and a lot more casual nudity).

The shock of recognition dissipates, to be replaced by the glance at the wristwatch.

I know that people like this exist, but, in terms of characters on the screen, I'm never shown why they need to.

Remarkably, the film gradually, effectively coheres, building to a climax at once unexpected yet integral to what has transpired before.

This is a movie that manages the neat trick of being impressive and infuriating at the same time.

The oscillation between focus on Sam and Gabi creates an uneven progression, although the contrast wisely displays the relativistic nature of age.

Evokes a New York sentimentalist tradition that mixes the edge of golden era Cassavettes with the nostalgia of Woody Allen--all of which owes eternal debt to the western European New Waves and Bergman.
