Movie Info

In Deepa Mehta's poignant and heartbreaking romance, Emilia Fox plays Fay, a generally content, thirtysomething Torontoite suffering in a relationship of quiet desperation with her boyfriend; Bruce Greenwood is Tom Avery, a loser in the ways of romance with three broken-hearted marriages behind him, who hosts a late-night call-in radio program. The two meet and grow deeply smitten with one another, but must ultimately learn to accept one another unconditionally. Life seems just about perfect,

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.

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.

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

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.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

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

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

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!
