Critic Reviews for The Road to Love

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Sensual and sweet.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

Doesn't add much to the coming-out genre, as it has been established in countless Sundance competition films and made-for-television movies.

New York Times
Top Critic

A coy sexual-awakening vignette acquires home-movie texture and sociological flavor.

June 29, 2004
Village Voice
Top Critic

A home movie in nearly every sense, replete with shaky hand-helds, aimlessly quavering tracking and clueless angles.

Film Journal International

Mature, sensitive study of homosexuality within North African societies.

Audience Reviews for The Road to Love


I gave an extra star, simply because this was made just different enough to earn the extra point. Saying that, wowe!!! watch out, this was NOT a good film at all. You can read what it is about, I am not going to say anything about that. I didn't like it, is all.
