Critic Reviews for Quiet City
Formally impressive but tedious.
In place of Before Sunrise's verbal fireworks, the aptly named Quiet City offers something more like linguistic sparklers -- modest, yes, but charming all the same.
Although the movie is hardly more ambitious than its young protagonists, there's a lot of value in a lazy day. Quiet City knows where to find it.
A talkfest like this is ripe for disaster, but Quiet City succeeds thanks to its two leads, Erin Fisher as Jamie and Cris Lankenau as Charlie. They're attractive and likable, and they hold our interest throughout.
Proof positive that life's mundanities are even more tedious projected onto a movie screen.
Audience Reviews for Quiet City
Couple meet by chance, they talk, go to the park, visit friends, go to an art gallery and then a party. That's all there is to it, plenty of dialogue which keeps the interest as does the interaction of the leads though it still feels forced and not so natural. This may be down to the awkwardness of the characters themselves. Cheap and cheerful it's a very simple film that some would argue shouldn't even be classified as film. It's more like forced realism or an orchestrated documentary. This is what real reality TV would be like if you took away the stupid "plots", manipulative editing and dodgy soundtracks.
