Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Critics Consensus

Quirky and a little reserved, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is nonetheless a charming little romantic drama sold by some strong central performances.

Audience Reviews for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

  • Jul 10, 2016
    Making your film as reserved and introverted as the main character is not big or clever.
    Marcus W Super Reviewer

    You may be turned off by the film's long and artless title, but after taking in this exquisitely restrained romance between man and woman, man and nature, the known and the unknown, you'd be hard pressed to find a title as earnest and true as the film itself.
    Alice S Super Reviewer

    This is a quiet charming movie with Emily Blunt. Kristin Scott Thomas is a bonus.
    Juli R Super Reviewer

    Yet another feel-good movie, Scott-Thomas should have featured in it more as she was hilarious.
