Critic Reviews for Mozart and the Whale

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Like Adam, this film is intended to offer a non-disabled audience a sense of "betterment." It's meant to be "uplifting," and "inspiring."

January 11, 2021 | Full Review…

Strong performances anchor this low-key romantic drama about two people with Asperger syndrome.

February 22, 2006

From the first, there is a refreshing absence of special pleading or under-the-microscope examination in Naess' approach.

February 7, 2006

Shapeless and redundant, this flick is exactly the sort of movie you'd envision if I said "mildly retarded yet physically gorgeous young romance."

Crazy and odd, but isn't all love that way. I thought this was beautiful and well done.

An uneven, honourably intended romantic comedy.
