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.

Conversations with Other Women feels like a one-act play stretched into a feature film and padded with those visual gimmicks.
March 30, 2006
The battle of the sexes is restaged to clever but inconsequential effect in Conversations With Other Women.
April 19, 2009
Director Hans Canosa has made a split-screen experimental student film about two would-be lovers who connect after a wedding party in New York City.

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.

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

Mostly it works because this is about two people desperately trying to do the impossible: to reconcile the past with the present, reality with fantasy, and desire with responsibility.

By fade out, the movie has run out of air: the quick, clever dialogue flattens out and it becomes contrived.

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

August 13, 2006
The split-screen gimmick is just that, but you could do a lot worse than watching the two gifted lead actors gab.
August 7, 2006
It may be dotted with fine observations, yet somehow the charm of its novelty grows stale, and the airless feeling of a closed set begins to fester.
August 3, 2006
The split screen sabotages [Canosa's] best intentions; it's a conceit that only manages to make the viewer irritable.

It's hard to imagine a Gallic film would make such an issue of Carter's character being over the hill at 40 or straight-facedly claiming that Eckhart is fat by any reasonable definition.

Director Hans Canosa's incisive and melancholy pas de deux... presented entirely in split-screen... [is] a potentially ostentatious piece of directorial hoohah, but it has rewards.
August 10, 2006
Though the movie is occasionally too clever-talky for its own good, it has the authentic ring of an elegy for love lost when one partner grows up while the other runs in place.
January 23, 2007
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."
