New York Daily News
A lovely little coming-of-age story, this Taiwanese romance was directed by Chih-Yen Yee with a skillful subtlety enhanced by his young cast.

New York Post
The sensitive subject matter is handled discreetly by writer-director Chin-yen Yee, who never lets the story sink into exploitation or finger-pointing.
70
The New York Times
Little more than a vignette elongated into a feature-length movie. Moody and slow moving, it depends on the truthfulness of its performances to carry it.
70
Set largely in empty public spaces late at night, Blue Gate Crossing supplements its slender narrative with disarming performances and plangent atmosphere.
60
Slight but affecting.

The Hollywood Reporter
Resembling a short story more than a narrative feature, the film tells its slender story in leisurely fashion, relying more on mood and atmosphere than dialogue or character development.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
Blue Gate Crossing is 85 minutes of wistful gloom.
40
Variety
High on charm but extremely low on content, Blue Gate Crossing is a half-hour short stretched to feature length.
