Critic Reviews for Like You Mean It

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The last gasps of a romantic relationship between two very different men are intimately and delicately charted in the beautifully immersive, if decidedly somber, "Like You Mean It."

November 26, 2015 | Full Review…

Like You Mean It is an honest portrait of love in crisis and rather than dwelling in those dramatic tropes especially typical of gay relationships on film, it uses them to dig deep into a man's psyche and inner demons uncompromisingly.

Audience Reviews for Like You Mean It

Nicely underplayed and unmelodramatic film about the beginning of the end of a relationship - - one that is unfairly but utterly realistically weighed. Lead character Mark (played by Philipp Karner who also wrote & directed the film) is massively flawed yet somehow always likeable even when doing unlikeable things, and the viewer roots for him and what's him to make the right decisions. Like You Mean It won't change the world, but it is beautifully shot, very well acted & written, absorbing, and ends perfectly.
