Endless wandering and questioning with dramatic simmerings on the back burner don't quite amount to emotional connection.

A wearisomely intellectual observation of one man's identity-hunt.

The tedious film might have been worth watching if Burman had given reasons to care about Ariel or anyone else. He doesn't and we don't.

A beautifully crafted film. Full of intriguing tracking shots, broken into vignettes introduced with lyrical titles, it has a willfully patient pace.

A precociously wise meditation on the crazy quilt of modern identity in general, and Jewish identity in particular.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The film's moments of whimsy and its wry comic insights into one man's Prufrockian drifting and yearning through life add up to a charming oddity.

Lost Embrace is an engaging Argentine film about a long awaited father-son reunion and the meaning it has for a confused young man.

... a film of minor pleasures. Burman recognizes the emotional bruises friends and family cause and he doesn't judge when his characters are unable to forgive...

It's 20 minutes too long -- forgivable in view of Burman's affection for his material.
