Reviews

Peter Howell Toronto Star | October 17, 2003

Yet another example of writer/director Klapisch's way of finding fresh new insights within the most mundane of circumstances.

Liam Lacey Globe and Mail | October 17, 2003

A film whose limitations are the same as its appeal: It's a bauble.

Andrew Sarris New York Observer | June 26, 2003

It features four of the most erotically and emotionally delectable female performances I have seen in one film this year.

Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel | June 20, 2003

Much of the charm of this film is in its understanding of the great fluidity of romantic relationships -- especially before people decide to settle down.

Joe Baltake Sacramento Bee | June 13, 2003

All in all, Klapisch's style approximates the excitement of the French New Wave of the late 1950s.

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | June 13, 2003

As he did in When the Cat's Away, Klapisch demonstrates an understanding for the way young people caught between the demands of adulthood and their lingering adolescence behave.

Stanley Kauffmann The New Republic | June 11, 2003

It's hard to complain about a film that combines Paris and the city in the world that is most like it.
