Critic Consensus: Aid workers get their due in A Perfect Day, which is just different and well-acted enough to overcome its logy pace and narrative clichés.

Critic Reviews for A Perfect Day
A taut, darkly comic drama about the dilemmas of international intervention in civil war, all of it neatly symbolized by one elusive length of rope. It is also, sadly, a film much marred by its sexism.
A Perfect Day is a war story told on a small scale. It's all the more powerful for its subtlety.
This is one of those rare, thoughtful war movies that doesn't emphasize brutality.
With an eclectic soundtrack, well-timed editing and crisp cinematography - and of course that terrific cast led by the great Del Toro - A Perfect Day is a rough-edged gem.
The film may be scattershot and odd, but it needs to be odder still.
Audience Reviews for A Perfect Day
A taut, darkly comic drama about the dilemmas of international intervention in civil war, all of it neatly symbolized by one elusive length of rope.
An odd film without much of a story. The B-story romance is scattershot and incomplete. If the only thing the film wishes to show is frustration and randomness, it succeeds. The soundtrack was inappropriate and intrusive. Robbins and BDT are fine actors, but don't have much to work with. Wait for cable and don't expect to be thrilled with it.
A day in the life of aid workers might sound crappy, but it is an enjoyable movie...the cast makes it though.
