— Mina Rakla, Awards Watch

"A journey worth taking, unexpectedly uplifting in its insights into human solitude and connection - quite beguiling."

— David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"It's an improbably beautiful film about strangers on a train coming to terms with each other as they make peace with their troubled selves."

— Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"'Compartment No. 6' evokes a powerful nostalgia for a type of loneliness we don't really have any more, and for the type of love that was its cure."

— Jessica Kiang, Variety

"Curiously affecting, understatedly wise, a take on the love story as fresh, resonant, and honest - so yes, unlikely - as you'll find in a contemporary film."

— Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"For those with a hunger for surprising, affecting films, I say seek this one out by all means. Mr. Kuosmanen’s direction of actors is impeccable; he and his stars deserve one another fully."

— Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"It’s tough-minded and tender-hearted in equal measure. It’s also slyly insightful on the theme of chance elements in solo travel, and unexpected, emotionally tricky connections along the way."

— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"A wry, heartfelt study of two characters who can’t escape their entwined fate, forged within the confines of cramped quarters and the peculiar intimacies of Russian train travel."

— Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"The detailed textures and claustrophobic sense of place -- and the terrifically genuine performances of Haarla and Borisov -- ensure that Compartment No. 6 never feels artificial or pre-programmed."

— Jake Coyle, Associated Press

"As bleak as the settings may be, it has a delicious black comic streak and shares the buzz of personal re-awakening without ever feeling obvious or cheap. It turns out to be a beacon of warmth amid a frozen wasteland."

— Dave Calhoun, Time Out
