From my TIFF 1995 reviews:
Flirt is the latest Hal Hartley flick, (director of "The Amateur" - rent it). It's a 3-parter. The same story is told 3 times: in 3 different cities, continents, situations, languages. In each story somebody is leaving town for 3 months, and the one left behind has to make a choice: will they try to keep the relationship going? The first 2 segments, in New York and Berlin, were the most enjoyable for me. They were relatively quickly paced, quirky, funny. The last segment, in Tokyo, was longer, slower, wierder. I imagine that for many people, it will be their favourite. If you've never seen a Hartley film, they are a distinctive bunch, and worth a look. If you like one, you'll probably enjoy the rest. 2 ¾ Stars (out of 4).
