Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A heart-tugger made totally irresistible because of the combination of Kitano's wry, sly sense of humor and his rigorous detachment.

  • 63

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    If the movie finally doesn't work as well as it should, it may be because the material isn't a good fit for Kitano's hard-edged underlying style.

  • 40

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Dreamy touches can't compensate for the film's main flaw, which is that the relationship between the two main characters never really develops.
