  • Longing intrigues because it presents an outwardly decent man falling equally in love with two women but eschews simplistic judgments.

  • [Director] Grisebach makes good use of her low-budget and nonprofessional leads. Just as the story is minimalist, so too is the documentary-like film's look: long static takes and tons of close-ups.

  • Grisebach's magnificent and moving chamber drama is a roaring mouse that offers ample room for extrapolation though its episodic editing, with Dardenne-style observations so astute that typically inexpressible passions and angst become raw and visible.

  • In the end, it fails to tug the heartstrings.

    May 26, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It is shot like a documentary and set in an almost comically mundane smalltown, but it deals with elemental forces and grand, romantic themes.

  • It would be wrong to overpraise Longing; it's a modest film, but richly rewarding and full of promise for the future.
