Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
A true original, thanks to some memorable characters, an engaging story and a thrilling classical soundtrack. Full Review
Derek Elley
The plucky music student who overcomes adversity is a staple subgenre of mainland cinema and, though Chen Kaige directs with greater slickness and more finesse and humor, there's still little to differentiate Together from any other state-studio pic. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Pays off in surprising ways, when love of music, and fame, plays second fiddle to love of family. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
The result is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser that will strike Chen's admirers as a heartfelt but decidedly minor effort. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
To contextualize the story's lack of subtlety, it helps to see these casting choices as ongoing penance for the time when, as a boy, Chen denounced his own father to the Red Guard. Full Review
