All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Strong performances anchor this low-key romantic drama about two people with Asperger syndrome.

From the first, there is a refreshing absence of special pleading or under-the-microscope examination in Naess' approach.

Shapeless and redundant, this flick is exactly the sort of movie you'd envision if I said "mildly retarded yet physically gorgeous young romance."

Crazy and odd, but isn't all love that way. I thought this was beautiful and well done.

An uneven, honourably intended romantic comedy.
