Critical praise for Dichterliebe: POETLOVE:

"A most unique film"[...]"I have to say I was blown away.  Well edited and produced, the film has a clear storyline, and the visuals by cinematographer Josh Mckie and director Paul were stunning: snowy woods in New Hampshire, Brooklyn rooftops, and a coffin filled with flowers and water were rather evocative."
- Elizabeth Frayer & Shawn Milnes (The Daily Beast)
"The film is really well-directed. The photography, the edition, pretty much everything is controlled. It all goes in the same direction to create this unique atmosphere of love, despair, remembrance." [...] "The main actor is a perfect incarnation of the hypersensitive man, deeply in love, whose heart is crushed. The performance is enhanced by its particularity, the singing."
- Simon Bertrand (Oaxaca Film Fest)
