A.O. Scott
The New York Times
By interweaving several stories, the movie suffers from a peculiar multiplier effect: it deepens its shallowness. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Narratively club-footed but directorially assured. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
A deft, elegant, melancholy tapestry of flawed outreach, and the big reason it succeeds is Podeswa's courage in dispensing with a lot of exposition and trusting the audience - and the faces of the actors - to fill a lot of what otherwise would be gaps. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
An elegant, deliberate film about loneliness and hope, connection and loss. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
The five stories in The Five Senses flawlessly and even artfully create a unified mood. Full Review
