An off beat movie that show Duval and his wife at their bes.

David Stratton
On just about every level -- as a thriller, as a romance and as a character study of a complicated man nearing the end of his professional life -- the film fails, and the meandering, sub-Cassavetes approach is likely to be a turnoff for all but the most indulgent viewers. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Like "The Apostle," it exists off the beaten path and will not satisfy mainstream viewers. Yet, for those who do not demand a firm adherence to formulas and genre-driven expectations, this movie offers the chance to see something a little different. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
An odd little thriller that celebrates, in order of importance, Mr. Duvall, tango and his real-life significant other, Luciana Pedraza, who makes her attractive debut as a screen actress and, yes, tango dancer. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
Los Angeles Times
A wonderfully eccentric piece of filmmaking -- to demand it cohere to formula would be to miss the point. Full Review
Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post
Someone forgot to remind Duvall to write an ending. Full Review
