«Hay una idea estimulante en el seno de Historias de dos que soñaron. En ella el cine se expone como elemento redentor, que otorga piedad ante la dura realidad, y que es capaz de transformar lo cotidiano en una aventura sólo posible en los terrenos de la ficción».
– Yago Paris: Insertos de Cine

Resalta el trabajo realizado alrededor del lenguaje, pues hay una plasticidad intrínseca en la fonética del idioma lejano puesta en juego. Los directores toman la voz del jefe de la familia para explicarnos la propuesta y crean un desfase entre diálogos y subtítulos; en un par de momentos es claro que se nos niega la posibilidad de leer lo que escuchamos, y en algún otro se suprime por completo el texto, ocultando información lingüística que, empero, contribuye a que entendamos mejor».
– Eduardo Cruz: Correspondencias

«Huyendo del documental de observacion, y abrazando una suerte de etnografía experimental, Bussman y Perdea inventan historias con los protagonistas, escuchan las que ellos cuentas, o les siperponen las que ellos imaginan, en una película de capas, viajes inacabados y procesos de transformación: metamorfosis en permanente tránsito (con Kafka en la lejanía)».
