    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The result is a film that's honest and tepid, intelligent and dull, worthy and forgettable. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A little like a British Eric Rohmer film -- a lot of talk, and a lot of talk about love and relationships -- Lawless Heart has wit and a winning charm. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Perfectly modulated in its tone and performances, Lawless Heart is content to be a small, quiet film. We could use a few more like it. show more
