David Stratton The Australian It's a rom-com for empty nesters and though it contains no surprises, Juan Vera's film is polished, occasionally astute and eminently watchable. Rated: 3/5 Jul 8, 2019 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Comedies like this are rare -- not just for the mature age range, but for the wisdom packed into the observation. It's a sophisticated comedy, born out of experience. Rated: 4/5 Jul 3, 2019 Full Review Denise Pieniazek Metacultura (AR) Through an intelligent script and good performances by its entire cast, An Unexpected Love manages to stand out within national cinema, especially in a genre like the romantic comedy whose Argentine productions are usually very poor. Rated: 7/10 Dec 28, 2023 Full Review Victor Pineyro Seventh Art Studio A love story, real, open, with shades of comedy and life between its lines. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 Aug 29, 2020 Full Review Pat Padua The DC Line You've seen (or avoided) dozens of movies like this, but director Juan Vera, who co-wrote the script with Daniel Cúparo, treats the material with more intelligence than you'll see in the average Hollywood middle-age crisis. Sep 12, 2019 Full Review Damien Straker Impulse Gamer Since he is strong with directing actors, Juan Vera is likely to make more challenging and less predictable films in the future.

Daniel G Though predicatable and rather conventional, the dialogues and the conviction of the protagonists was so intense, that this stands above many similar rom-coms which weren't really so comedic. I almost considered it a 4,5, but I felt some of the supporting cast was too superficially presented, like Marcos' Dad. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Judith F The acting is great, the writing not so much. There was no foundation for any big love affair. Hard to believe they fell in love. And all of the action consisted of ringing doorbells and slamming doors. Finally, the cliches. Angry waspy mother, disapproving children and friends, husband who wants custody, and more. I couldn't find anything new or intriguing about this film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/29/22 Full Review Audience Member Esta buena,es muy entretenida,recomendable 7/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautifull portrait of a marriage, a divorce and a single life. Self-analytical and up-to-date for 50+ agers in 2019... ð'? Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice movie that reflects the daily problems that a couple can have. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member La historia es buena aunque un poco mas larga de lo necesario, falto una media hora de edición. La dirección de arte de la película falla y recarga cada cuadro de forma tal que muchos parecen tomados mas de un comercial, rayando en lo cursi, en lo kitsch. El guion se diluye con el paso del tiempo, tiene muchos huecos y prolongaciones innecesarias que aburren y ocultan el buen fondo de la película. La verdad resulta aburrida de no ser por el esfuerzo de Darín y de Morán, la cual es gran actriz pero no la mejor para este papel. Pudo haber sido fenomenal pero cayó en malas manos.
