  • Critic Reviews
    "It's a slow and meditative piece on life and personal chaos, yet it's never boring."
    Box Office

    "CHERRY BLOSSOMS is both a tender tale of cultural crossings and a double portrait of grief....You can be charmed and touched by the way it plays out."
    New York Times

    "[T]here's a grace to it all, and moments of oddball poetry..." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    "With its dazzling palette, dominated by the extravagant pinks of cherry-blossom season once the story moves to Japan, CHERRY BLOSSOMS succeeds mostly at the hands of cinematographer Hanno Lentz, whose keen eye for location and detail give the movie much of its verve."
    Washington Post

    "[S]o committed and sustained is Dorrie's vision and so inspired are Wepper and Elsner and their supporting players that CHERRY BLOSSOMS is a stunning reminder of the omnipresence of mortality."
    Los Angeles Times
