"In these scenes, no matter how sad it gets, this movie is no tragedy porn; it moves the heart in such a more complicated, genuine and hearty way."
Now and Then, Here and There Review
"Now and Then, Here and There makes you feel hopeless. Its existential treatment of terror leaves a hole in the stomach that cannot be filled, one that cannot be moved, one that can only be accepted. It feels nigh impossible to carry on, and giving up is the only option left. You feel you must accept this darkness. There is no fighting it, no possible move you can make to escape. But you must."
