Though obviously a labor of love, American Rhapsody is an uneven, heavy-handed effort, particularly in the second half.

The States becomes an apple-pie wonderland of Elvis and Coca-Cola, the old country either a gray police state or, in scenes of Suzanne's happy childhood, a pastoral haven.
An American Rhapsody, in its straightforward way, earns its emotions.
An American Rhapsody speaks from the heart to the heart.
This should be a fascinating story, but An American Rhapsody never develops a melody or a rhythm, much less the epiphany the title suggests.
The film is never less than engaging.
A story this compelling deserves a better telling.
A heartfelt coming of age tale of an Hungarian-American adolescent, well acted by Scarlett Johansson
In spite of the movie's inflated title, writer/director Eva Gardos tells an emotionally charged story of Hungarian immigration that is touching and historically accurate.
Just another faux-weepy drama told with a standard fetishistic immigrant's sentimentality.
The 'stranger in a strange land' story has been told many times, in print and on film, but seldom as poignantly.
Begins with harrowing detail but develops gaping holes as a decade and a half of potentially volcanic events and relationships is molded into a 106-minute movie.
A beautiful film that covers the full spectrum of emotions. For the most part, it's convincing and poignant.
Based on a true story, An American Rhapsody is an inspiring tale of heroism and self-sacrifice. When a Hungarian family flees to America to escape from the oppressive Communist regime the youngest daughter is separated and left behind, but years later when she is reunited with her family she feels caught between two worlds. Unfortunately, the film is poorly structured and isn't able to build any suspense or momentum. Additionally, the characters aren't developed very well, and never really connect with the audience. So while the story is quite interesting, An American Rhapsody suffers from weak filmmaking.
Not a blockbuster, but an interesting true story family drama. The casting director of this movie sure knew talent when they saw it. All throughout the film we are blessed with many up and comings..especially Scarlett Johansson. The movie itself is made-for-tv quality, and slightly better than average.
