Determining the exact level of artifice never stops being distracting, and the emotional climax is far from earned.

It's easy to see how this quirky, offbeat approach could seem refreshing within the rarefied, hermetic atmosphere of a festival. Elsewhere, however, it comes across as amateurish and considerably less charming.

Paper Heart wallows in that irritating hipster preciousness known as "twee" for nearly its entire running time.

The questioning yields but modest insights, more along the line of "love is a hard thing to find--when you have it, keep it" than any heretofore undiscovered secret formulas.

Ultimately, one doubts that even the parts that seemed real are real, and the entire house-of-cards comes tumbling down.

It felt completely inauthentic.

The biggest problem is that Yi's quest for love, and understanding of such, simply isn't all that interesting.

A maddeningly meta blend of documentary and fiction that begs you to admire how precious it is.

Paper Heart is like a really special five-minute YouTube clip that goes on for an hour and a half.

Some viewers have found this film adorable but its quirky cuteness was lost on me.

The pretend moments call into question the legitimacy of the genuine ones, until it becomes impossible for Paper Heart to make its own point.

It's not the worst cutesy, lo-fi love story you'll ever see, but it's shown up by all those genuine true-life tales. Alongside them, its falseness is too glaring.

This indie squib wobbles briefly on a tightrope between sincerity and cuteness before plunging headlong to a death-by-whimsy.

Still, the stylistic games reflect Yi and her generation's larger dilemma. Paper Heart is a movie that can't commit about people who don't know how to.

Paper Heart is a cute movie, a little too cute and a little too aware of its own cuteness.
