      Leti A It was a very interesting movie with a great story line it just left you with some unanswered questions at the end Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review a a made an account just to rate this. it made me cry and that *never* happens to me. wholesome and sweet little love story about timeloops - i'm not normally someone to go for love stories, but this was just. so perfect. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Tristan T Hidden gem, doesn't get talked enough, it deals with loss and how it started with the "main character" mark and trying to realize what he did wrong trying to figure out how to fix the time loop but it ends with Margaret and how she deals with the loss of her mother and how she throughout the whole movie she talks about this 4d shape (I think? I haven't watched this movie in a while) and how in it she says "when your there you can see everything and at the end she kinda does, not the best but beautiful none the less Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Ron B Happened to watch it a second time recently and really appreciated the message in the film on the second viewing. Both actors did a phenomenal job and their chemistry definitely works well together. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review matthias s "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things" is a pleasant addition to the time-loop movie genre, and while it has its charms, it doesn't quite reach the heights of some of its predecessors. Kathryn Newton's performance is, as always, a highlight, bringing depth and charisma to her character. The film's focus on finding beauty in the small moments of life is commendable, and it approaches the classic time-loop plot in a new and different way, injecting a sense of wonder into the routine. However, the movie's pacing is a bit too slow for my taste, and I found myself occasionally yearning for a more dynamic narrative. Perhaps my expectations were set too high, as I hoped for a deeper exploration of the themes of acceptance of death and celebrating life. The ending, while not a complete disappointment, left me wanting a bit more closure. In the end, "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things" is a charming and thoughtful film, but it falls short of being a time-loop masterpiece. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Ashley H The plot was quite interesting, but i kind of got bored up till that point Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Eric Kohn indieWire In the process of merging formulas, "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things" recycles the same material it seems inclined to rejuvenate, one step at a time. Rated: C+ Feb 18, 2021 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews The characters are likeable, the actors evidence chemistry, and the romantic comedy elements are assembled effectively. Rated: 3/4 Feb 15, 2021 Full Review Peter Rainer FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Kathryn Newton and Kyle Allen do have some very good chemistry together, and yes they do acknowledge Groundhog Day. Feb 13, 2021 Full Review Rebecca Johnson Film Focus Online It has fun and likeable characters, a cool indie soundtrack and an interesting premise that combines coming-of-age and science fiction pretty seamlessly. Rated: 3/5 Aug 6, 2023 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews I was expecting less than this but it’s charming, delightful, and fun! Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Mitchell Beaupre Awards Radar The Map of Tiny Perfect Things doesn’t break the mold in any way, nor does it really do anything new with an increasingly used premise Rated: 2/4 Sep 22, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
