Reviews:

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Ombre could have been something. It is at least clear that the filmmakers were trying to do something more than the average disposable gay indie, with its serious approach to the psychology of an affair and its weird but valid dissection of modern celebrity. But it’s still a pretty bad movie, and that mostly seems to stem for a lack of experience.” (Read full review)

1.0          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“Couldn’t (the filmmakers) at least try a few rehearsals before they call it a good take? Or are they just shameless in their fervent desire to finish anything as dubious as this?” (Read full review)
