"A colourful mediation on the rewards and demands of meaningful friendship."

— Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"With its soulful tin heart, Robot Dreams moves us to appreciate the fortune of having a precious pal. Whether for a season or a lifetime."

— Carlos Aguilar, IndieWire

"Bolstered by the resilient spirit of New York City, this is one of the loveliest movies that you will see this year, animated or otherwise."

— Tomris Laffly, TheWrap

"'Robot Dreams' should build a sufficient following to prove its own message to the lonely and forlorn: when it comes to love, quality trumps quantity."

— Guy Lodge, Variety

"Make no mistake, this is a love story. Its radical sweetness arises from a wellspring of empathy. Its radiant colors and lucid conception of vulnerability in the face of a largely inconsiderate world, sink deep beneath the skin in the liminal space between the soul and the heart that can make animation such a wondrous medium. Berger’s 'Robot Dreams' is its stunning reality."
