The American review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported that 95% of critics gave the film positive reviews, based on 44 reviews. Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 77 out of 100, based on 15 reviews.
The film has garnered positive press in the United States; J. Hoberman of The Village Voice called it, "a casually bleak and neatly structured ensemble comedy—at once deadpan and bemused." Noel Murray of The A.V. Club said "the story and the situation are slight, but in the best possible way." Richard Brody of The New Yorker called it a "wise and gentle comedy of political realism." Wendy Ide of The Times described the film as "one of the best of the new wave of Romanian cinema" and "a droll delight that questions the nature of historical record and the realities of postcommunist Romania with a slyly comic and disarmingly self-mocking tone." Also, it got a perfect 4 stars out of 4 from the New York Post.
V.A. Musetto of the New York Post named 12:08 East of Bucharest the best film of 2007. A.O. Scott of The New York Times named it the 6th best film of 2007 (along with Live-In Maid).

Let Spades be trumps! she said, and trumps they were.”

“I have been reporting club meetings for four years and I am tired of hearing reviews of the books I was brought up on. I am tired of amateur performances at occasions announced to be for purposes either of enjoyment or improvement. I am tired of suffering under the pretense of acquiring culture. I am tired of hearing the word culture used so wantonly. I am tired of essays that let no guilty author escape quotation.”
—Josephine Woodward, U.S. author. As quoted in Everyone Was Brave, ch. 3, by William L. ONeill (1969)
