5 to 7 is a film that totally flew under the radar, but hopefully will gain the fans it deserve via streaming services. Gems like this one really need to be seen.

5 to 7 will break your heart, mend it back together, make it sing, and then break it again. It's schmaltzy at times, the love scenes are shot too rigidly, and the concept isn't exactly novel, but Levin, a first-time director, makes a good impression.

The result is a comedy that pretends to emulate Allen... [Full review in Spanish]

Any fondness you might have for it is all but guaranteed to evaporate at the end, when after reaching its preordained conclusion it spends a full 20 minutes wallowing in unnecessary mawkishness.

Saccharine, overwhelmingly melodramatic and filmed with a glossy sheen, one is either quickly won over by the charms of the romantic drama 5 to 7 or simply turned off from the start.

5 To 7 is a pretty standard rom-com, but sets the bar higher than most with it's French New Wave references.

While it doesn't exactly take your breath away, this small coming-of-age story will make you smile about how film can romanticise even the slightest of ideas.

Go along with the dopey premise of 5 To 7 for as long as you can, and its guilty-pleasure charms will kind of grow on you.

The fairytale aura is nourished by outdated yet timeless notions of Frenchness and Americanness, grand romantic fantasies in themselves.

This is an above average romantic weeper despite its classist flaws and its liberal scrounging from The French New Wave.

Though in many ways conventional, [5 to 7] is nonetheless emotionally engaging.

The strong cast, a beautiful score, and a surprisingly affecting ending make it more convincing that it seems at first.

Not the luckiest pair of lovers, or the most fortunate use of two hours of anybody's time.
April 25, 2015
As silly as "5 to 7" is, there's a great deal of truth lapping at the corners concerning the long-range value of a broken heart, an occupational hazard of love that has inspired writers to pen some of time's greatest novels.

It's not a masterpiece, but it is a pleasant surprise for the genre.

"5 to 7" is all over the map in terms of tonality and screenwriting, with Levin trying to stuff his favorite elements from French cinema into a movie that can't handle the weight.

Though Yelchin does not elevate his role much above pasty callowness, Marlohe brings to hers a luminous irony and melancholy that makes her the ideal elusive beauty of hyper-romantic adolescent dreams.

The problem with 5 to 7 is that the most important romance, between Brian and Arielle, never feels real.
