Critic Reviews for Nico and Dani (Krámpack)

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (20)

Filmmaker Gay nimbly navigates the raging waters of burgeoning sexuality.

June 29, 2001

For a movie that has been praised for its sensitive realism, Nico and Dani takes some large liberties.

June 29, 2001 | Rating: 2.5/4

Could be useful to a confused teenager, suggesting that we all have to choose our own paths in life.

June 15, 2001 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Manages to be both joyful and unnerving in its unflinching portrayal of emerging sexuality.

June 14, 2001

Although films about adolescents stumbling urgently toward sexual self-identity are plentiful, most are put to shame by the delicacy, poignancy, and honesty of Nico and Dani.

June 1, 2001

The film seems unfocused at times, but on reflection, stands out as an unusually sensitive and honest view of teen sexuality, straight or gay.

Audience Reviews for Nico and Dani (Krámpack)

An interesting "coming of age" story. Does I good job of showing the struggles of coming to terms with your sexuality. The struggle between exploring your true feelings and coming to terms with your feelings based on that exploration and simply doing what "society" expects of you to spite what you amy or may not be feeling. And more importantly it shows just how ridiculous it is to think that you have it all figured out based on one or two (early) experiences in life and how important it is to be open and honest with yourself and those who are close to you about what feels right for you. Sadly, the film ends on a rather flat and incomplete note - but for the most part it was rather touching. (No pun intended!)
