I saw this at the Sarasota FL film festival and loved it. Heartwarming

Zachary Heinzerling's five-years-in-the-making portrait of Brooklyn-based artists Ushio and Noriko Shinohara is a warts-and-all portrait of love, sacrifice and the creative spirit. Full Review

Mr. Heinzerling is an artist too. The window he has opened onto the lives of his subjects is a powerful and beautiful visual artifact in its own right. Full Review
Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times
For all of the eccentricities that come in any telling of an artist's life, Cutie and the Boxer's real magic is in so beautifully telling a familiar story of husbands and wives. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
The love the two have for each other, particularly she for him, is obvious and moving. So, too, is not just the desire to create, but the need to. Full Review
Chris Cabin
Slant Magazine
Funny, moving, honest, and occasionally inspiring, but as a portrait of a talent emerging from the shadow of a more public talent, the scale of the shadow is curiously omitted. Full Review
