Village Voice by Abbey Bender

By focusing on the small details of Byong-man and Gye-yeul's life — from their humble, secluded home to their touches and glances — the film paints a sweet yet tragic portrait.


Variety by Dennis Harvey

It’s not that “My Love” feels inherently dubious; it’s that its execution is just a little too smiling-through-tears slick to be swallowed whole.


The Hollywood Reporter by Frank Scheck

Serving as a gentle reminder that enduring love is still possible, My Love, Don't Cross That River is practically the cinematic equivalent of marriage counseling.


Los Angeles Times by Katie Walsh

In following this couple, Jin’s film celebrates the wonder and magic of every single life; finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.


The Playlist by Kimber Myers

My Love, Don’t Cross That River serves as a testament that romantic love can endure, particularly when it is nurtured by people who care deeply for one another and don’t hesitate to show that feeling with every breath.


Washington Post by Michael O'Sullivan

The vérité style of filmmaking is slow and sometimes monotonous, making it all the more surprising that you will probably find yourself bawling your eyes out — without ever knowing how you got to that state — at the film’s profoundly, heartbreakingly somber conclusion.
