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.

Sins and all, I ended up liking Sarah Polley's sophomore directorial effort for its unresolved, warm-to-the-touch emotions
August 23, 2012
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.
