Critic Reviews for The Republic of Love

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (5) | DVD (2)

A quaintly uncomplicated romance that struggles to keep up with the quality of its acting.

The charisma of the cast goes a long way to bring warmth to this story of winter love.

Top Critic

Wintry symbolism has never felt so forced -- and in a film that ought to have been played as a romantic comedy, it's never been more out of place, either.

Mehta's screenplay never effectively addresses one of the major themes of the story.

February 13, 2004
Jam! Movies

A modest endeavour but there is much to quietly savour here.

Jam! Movies

The tiresome zaniness and Seinfeldian conceits might be forgivable if the romantic plot weren't so full of empty truisms and nonsense lines that would stump a Zen monk.

February 12, 2004
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The lack of vitality and dramatic storyline renders this tale about faith in love underwhelming and artificial.

Full Review… | February 12, 2004

...remains entertaining because of the two stars, both of whom give incredibly charismatic performances.

Reel Film Reviews

Mehta's confidently crafted film is more intelligent and serious than your standard romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for The Republic of Love

An interesting movie! Good story plot. Great cast! Beautiful music. An amazing director! (One of my favorite directors) Here's a movie that gives an intriguing perspective into the dynamics of love, family, relationships, and friendships. Tom and Fay are two individuals who meet and fall in love at first sight. They are inseparable and believe that love is definitely worth pursuing. Definitely worthy!
