WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

The Hollywood Reporter by

A well-crafted, tightly controlled and emotionally probing X-ray of the attempts of one couple to use tech to keep their relationship alive across a continent and an ocean, Long Distance is a satisfyingly solid example of form and content working together.

Village Voice by Abby Garnett

It's ultra-serious, confined almost entirely indoors, and, with its Facebook pages and Google Maps walk-throughs, inextricably tied to the way we live right now. It's also well crafted and strikingly intimate.

IndieWire by Eric Kohn

With time, the filmmaker achieves a small miracle by stringing together the movie's concise segments into an emotional whole.

Variety by Justin Chang

From first frame to last, the filmmaking exudes intelligence and control, with none of the chilly emotional distance those qualities can imply. Form and content are in near-perfect balance.

San Francisco Chronicle by Mick LaSalle

It’s hard to know what to make of this, but it’s quite enough that it happens at all. The film has some longueurs — it isn’t scintillating for every second of screen time. But Marques-Mercet and his actors establish an intimacy with the audience that’s practically unique. Even if you love it only a little, not completely, you will probably remember 10,000 Km for the rest of your life.

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

It’s a simple, cheap and limited concept beautifully executed. The players, especially Tena, tell us the story with their faces.

Los Angeles Times by Sheri Linden

Marques-Marcet, co-writer Clara Roquet and the actors are alert to something less obvious: the ways that they become self-conscious performers. Even though the characters aren't always likable, their pained awareness is poignant.
