"A must-see"
★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The performances are impossibly strong and awards-season ready. Anything other than a best actress Oscar nomination for Lee will be criminal."
★★★★★ Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

“Celine Song’s tender, time-spanning romance is an exquisitely judged wonder. A directorial debut of remarkable poise and power.”
★★★★★ Matt Maytum, Total Film

"A transcendent debut for South Korean-Canadian filmmaker Celine Song, this romantic drama is a masterclass in storytelling. It will stay with you, maybe even into your next life."
★★★★★ Nick De Semlyen, Empire 

"The film’s great magic is the way it captures the beauty of lonely cities with a camera that seems to caress their geography." ★★★★★ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"It’s a beautiful, transporting film but one made with both feet firmly on the ground."
★★★★ Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

"An eloquent attempt to understand how our memories can end up turning other people into projection screens for our own, confused desires."
★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)
