Critics reviews

From its second act on, "Romancing in Thin Air" becomes less a film about a man and woman falling in love than a film about how and why people fall in love in the first place, and it soon becomes clear that the climax it is working toward isn't an obvious union but, much more remarkably, an act of forgiveness, reconciliation, and much-needed catharsis.
