Geoff Pevere Toronto Star Generically whimsical little film. Rated: 2/5 May 16, 2003 Full Review Ray Conlogue Globe and Mail The novel, which alone of Beresford-Howe's works still has many readers and admirers, is not done justice by this film. Rated: 2/4 May 16, 2003 Full Review Jeet Heer National Post It is hobbled by the sentimental approach taken by writer-director Claude Fournier. Rated: 2/4 May 16, 2003 Full Review Liz Braun Jam! Movies Clumsy in the extreme, working very much on the surface in both thematic and technical ways. Rated: 2/5 May 16, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
