  • Wolff cuts a fascinating if frustrating figure, and you wish the film would spend a bit more time teasing out who she is, how she lives, and what she sees in a bore like Max.

  • [An] emotionally inert drama about an author trying to reanimate the past.

  • Nothing really rings true in Return to Montauk until the pain breaks through and the tears start to flow. Perhaps that's the point.

  • "Return to Montauk" is Volker Schlndorff's tasteful, high-minded Euro-literate version of a Lifetime Movie - and I mean that (mostly) as a compliment.

  • the feeling at the end is that something is still missing in this story [Full Review in Spanish]

    September 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Schlondorff's film is neither as slight as its premise promises nor as provocative as it might have been in a sometimes idiosyncratic version of a scenario we've seen before.

Audience Reviews for Return to Montauk

  • Feb 20, 2017
    A mildly interesting (if not at all memorable) character study that benefits from strong performances (especially Nina Hoss) and displays a mature understanding of the personal conflict faced by a self-centered man who wants to relive an old romance from his past.
