I was hooked to the screen, to the film's sense of time and place and risk, to the intelligence of the talk and the intimations of pleasure and regret in Bonham Carter's performance.

Pining affair for mature art house fans.

...although infused with a number of truthful moments and an awfully romantic atmosphere, director Hans Canosa's use of split-screen remains a distraction throughout the film's admittedly brisk running time.

Engrossing from start to finish, Conversations with Other Women is a stimulating man/woman tussle about life, love and the whole damn thing. It's funny, unexpected, philosophical and romantic with a dash of melancholy thrown in for good measure

Initially, the split screen seems like a quirky idea. But it gets old fast.

An intriguing deconstruction of a failed relationship, long past its point of no return.

A near-perfect amalgamation of cinematic technique and content.

One of the most realistically romantic movies I've seen in a while. And I'm not easily impressed by what generally passes for "movie romance."

The film is technically brilliant but emotionally shallow; take away the split screen gimmick, and you have a romantic drama that wouldn't be worth its running time.

You spend more time watching the technique than the interplay between Carter and Eckhart.

The insights it offers into modern relationships are not particularly deep. But as an acting tour de force, the movie offers enough leisurely pleasures to entertain.

The film ultimately becomes too contrived to be anything but a fleeting diversion, but kudos to these emerging filmmakers for daring to make something a little bit different and, for the most part, intriguing.

The charm of Conversations With Other Women, a gimmicky but oddly moving two-character drama that flies in from who knows where, is its intelligent knowingness.

The observations about love and sex and time and memory are uncommonly sharp and true.

Eckhart delivers a complicated performance, veering from aggressive to abashed, and stopping at puppy-eager, jealous, and conflicted along the way.

The gimmick has its poetic moments, but the actors can't do much to make screenwriter Gabrielle Zevin's strategems for characters seem like real people.

There's a reason Before Sunrise and Before Sunset were done as two movies, not one.
