"Of the animated shorts, [Head Over Heels is] the cleverest." -Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"The attention to detail is staggering, particularly for a stop-motion animated movie... There may be an impressive crop of animated shorts this year, but Head Over Heels is the most fully realized of the whole bunch. Flawless." -William Bibbiani, CraveOnline.com

"This beautifully animated film is also a wonderfully unique story... Both whimsical and deeply felt... Simply extraordinary." -Richard Propes, theindependentcritic.com
