The film's moments of whimsy and its wry comic insights into one man's Prufrockian drifting and yearning through life add up to a charming oddity.

As visually captivating as it is emotionally engaging.

The film's sophistication -- and it is an immensely sophisticated film -- lies in its refusal to tuck in too tightly its shirttails.

Burman explored this world before in 2000's Waiting for the Messiah, but in Lost Embrace, his maturity results in a much tighter and engaging film.

A beautifully crafted film. Full of intriguing tracking shots, broken into vignettes introduced with lyrical titles, it has a willfully patient pace.

The wit with which Burman casts an almost Shakespearean longing for purpose and direction against the tiny confines of a seedy mall is adroit and inspired.

Were it a book, it would go somewhere on the shelf with Jonathan Safran Foer and early Philip Roth. It also possesses traces of early Jean-Luc Godard and his wit with characters, as well as some of Wes Anderson's random silliness.

... a film of minor pleasures. Burman recognizes the emotional bruises friends and family cause and he doesn't judge when his characters are unable to forgive...

Nearly overdoses on the quirks at times ... yet always finds a way to stay comfortably above the annoyance line.

Sweet but not too, a tangy, teasing valentine to dear hearts and gentle people who start to feel like family. Burman is like Woody Allen with a human face.
