Reception[edit]

Ben Sachs of Chicago Reader called Hospitalité a "charming comedy",[3] while Chris Cabin of Slant Magazine called it "Essentially timeless".[4]

Maggie Lee of The Hollywood Reporter said that the film is "bizarre" and compared disguised Japanese xenophobia as a "house intruder" motif to that of Yoshimitsu Morita's Family Game and Max Frisch's play The Fire Raisers.[5]

Ronnie Scheib of Variety was quoted saying that "[the film] maintains a marvelous tension between a prim comedy of manners and unbridled slapstick".[6]
