Sexually charged, frank, and relatable, Take This Waltz is a bittersweet observation of adult romance.

A mess of the sort that only a brilliant person can slop up on there.

The gorgeous photography gives summertime Toronto a steamy, sexy glow and the music (including the Leonard Cohen song that provides the title) adds to the film's air of yearning.

Though nicely shot and well acted, especially by Michelle Williams, this is a minor, conventional work and a step down for Polley after her splashy directing debut, Away from Her.

This slice-of-life character study doesn't tell the whole story. Rather, this is a glimpse into a short part of the life of a woman who seems a lot like an enigma.

Polley's sophomore feature fumbles between reality and fantasy, often insightful but frequently ungrounded. Dig that carnival ride, though.

Despite flying perilously close to neurotic indie 'quirkiness', Polley's well considered screenplay and Williams' charming screen presence mean that the film will encourage a wealth of post-viewing dissection.

Like its title, Take This Waltz is sometimes conceptually awkward - but it's also occasionally funny, steamy and always well photographed.

This film's saving grace is Williams whose character follows another tormented path of self-discovery/preservation ...

Williams works her adorable little chipmunk cheeks to the bone in a typically weighty role.

Sins and all, I ended up liking Sarah Polley's sophomore directorial effort for its unresolved, warm-to-the-touch emotions

Polley is very good at depicting the small highs and lows of modern relationships - the frequent poignant moments of everyday intimacy will doubtless strike a chord with many couples.

Polley is a subtle filmmaker, and a surprising one, too.

Beautifully photographed, maudlin and moving, bruising and bittersweet, Take This Waltz is a heartrending emotional roller coaster.

Committed and resonant, Take This Waltz gets under your skin - and feels a lot like the work of an auteur in the making.
