[A] dreary Canadian drama.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Ms. Jaye uses sound, composition and careful patience to create a contemplative mood of memory, loss and magic. With limited resources and the power of storytelling, she has created a small film that feels mainstream and epic.

Top Critic

There's a truly wrenching, decades-spanning, war-torn love story trying to escape from this overly restrained fable.

Audience Reviews for The Pin

An effective little movie about the remembrance of a brief relationship. Might have been improved with a bit more development but, as is, it might more effectively relate the transient impermanence of experience.
