„A different sort of coming-of-ager, contempo drama Run, if You Can centers on three smart twentysomethings poised to move on to another phase of life. First theatrical feature from young Teuton helmer Dietrich Brueggemann (sharing writing honors on a pleasingly full-circle script with his thesp sister Anna) offers witty dialogue and appealing performances in a romantic triangle with a twist, while the underlying theme of overcoming one’s physical and mental limitations lends the small but affecting pic an additional marketing hook.“ (Alissa Simon, Variety)
