May 20, 2019 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter Pariser doesn't seem quite sure how to sketch the wider world around his two protagonists, with friends and colleagues floating in and out of the picture in a way that might be lifelike but that also keeps creating expectations... May 18, 2019 Full Review Milagros Amondaray La Nación (Argentina) Elegantly filmed... Rated: 4/5 Jun 30, 2022 Full Review Pablo O. Scholz Clarín A rarity: dialogues that are worth listening to and an image like you haven't seen in a while [35mm film]. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 30, 2022 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com A paradigmatic representation of French cinema: pure, essential, and yes, also fascinating. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jun 28, 2022 Full Review Christian Gallichio The Playlist It's a strange hybrid of a film, with the two disparate sections never really working in conjunction.
