Critic Reviews for Return to Montauk

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

  • 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 Schlöndorff's tasteful, high-minded Euro-literate version of a Lifetime Movie - and I mean that (mostly) as a compliment.

  • It's main story-line is a mess, too intellectual to tug at the heart strings and too wordy to accurately capture emotion.

  • Sadly this Colm Tóibín-assisted effort has none of the warmth of his best work.

Audience Reviews for Return to Montauk


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.
