Proof positive that life's mundanities are even more tedious projected onto a movie screen.

Formally impressive but tedious.

Quiet City may be modest in budget and muted in its ambitions, but for anyone who imagines that truly independent American cinema is dead, this most chaste of romances is a quiet film worth shouting about.

It's a wonderfully goofy movie that was a fun watch.

Quiet City often attains a floating, poetic buoyancy that pulls a fast one on gravity.

Tender and sad, it is a fully realized work of mumblecore poetry.

Quiet City is a slight film, but it's so pure and precise and honest that it takes on stature beyond its actual size. As a work of art, it makes a big noise indeed.

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.

In order for such a small film like this to work, you have to kind of fall in love with the leads, and both Fisher and Lankenau make that easy to do.

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.

August 29, 2007
A contemplative widescreen experience that views its landscape -- the borderline-industrial hipster neighborhoods of Brooklyn, N.Y. -- with painterly patience.
August 31, 2007
Callow, self-centered, often infuriatingly inarticulate but filled with possibility; Katz and leads, who improvised much of their own dialogue, capture the contradictions with enough fragile charm that it's hard not to wish them well.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

Evokes a memorable aesthetic to surround its minor-key maybe-romance.
