A proud and optimistic testament to the youthful spirit of seniors who refuse to let such a trifle as their failed lives get in the way of a bit of fun.
90
The bittersweet charm of this extraordinary film is trumped only by its wisdom. Without resorting to schmaltz or sticky pathos, director Vladimír Michálek (a child of 49) fashions an allegory about aging, friendship and love that equals (and often surpasses) the best American movies on those tricky subjects, from "Cocoon" to "On Golden Pond."
75
This wistfully charming slice-of-life comedy celebrates an elderly man defiantly thumbing his nose at old age.

New York Daily News
Brodsky's last film before his death is a moving tribute to his career.

New York Post
The result is a charming mix of Walter Mitty and "About Schmidt."

ReelViews
The film will almost certainly speak most strongly to those viewers whose age approximates those of the characters, but the narrative and performances are strong enough to involve anyone who gives this motion picture a chance.
75
Gains depth from subtle dark humor and a few genuinely emotional moments
70
Warm and thoughtful tale.
50
Provides a compassionate look at problems of old age that Hollywood rarely bothers to treat seriously.

Miami Herald
Despite Fanda's shenanigans, and many are out-loud funny, Autumn Spring is not that uplifting though it isn't a downer, either. It's more an ode to friendship and marriage.
