The Hollywood Reporter
Doerrie goes beyond the "Lost in Translation" jokes about East-West culture clashes to communicate something meaningful and deep about Japanese art and thought. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
While Ms. Drrie's film is exquisitely shot, its themes and metaphors are obvious rather than subtle, and its emotional rhythms -- rueful laughter punctuating the pathos -- would not be out of place in a television drama. Full Review
Adam Markovitz
Entertainment Weekly
There's a grace to it all, and moments of oddball poetry. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Thanks to an accomplished cast, anchored by Elsner and Wepper, and observant filmmakers, very little in Cherry Blossoms is lost in translation. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Both austere and garish, simultaneously dry and sentimental, tightly repressed and extravagantly expressive, bourgeois and bohemian. It's a seesaw, but Dorrie finds the balance. Full Review
