The vision of Intimate Stories is amusingly warm-hearted without being cloying or sentimental; the landscape may be harsh, but the performances are inviting.

This comic Argentine road movie shows human nature at its most generous.

Like the performances, the movie is a small-scale feat of naturalism.

While the Argentine filmmaker takes his time, his film isn't tedious.

Has no profound statements to make, but it does provide warm and fuzzy comfort.

As stripped down as its title, this gentle Argentinian road movie makes much out of very little.

Bathed in chilly winter air with a fragrance of hot coffee, the film moves at an unhurried pace, taking in the sights and sounds of the various pit stops, and essentially enjoying itself.

It's the surprising but effective payoff to Don Justo's journey that has the most emotional pull, which is due in no small part to newcomer Benedicti's performance.

Vacuous road movie in which vacant characters receive rewards that far outweigh their uninspired goals.

Sorin's charming road comedy captures the humanity of small-town dreamers.

Warm and frequently very funny, Argentine director Carlos Sorin's third feature weaves together three story lines into one road-tripping adventure that's a joy ride from beginning to end.

Gentle, humanistic, delicious.

Feels like a campfire yarn bereft of the giant, climactic payoff, instead maintaining a relaxed, almost demure tone of destiny-touched hopefulness

Quiet and unpretentious, the film's humanism isn't confrontational exactly but it's unmistakable nonetheless.
