      Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Aurore gives Agnes Jaoui one of the roles of her life... Rated: 4/5 May 18, 2018 Full Review Donald Clarke Irish Times At times, the film comes across like a less cerebral version of Mia Hansen-Lve's Things to Come ... but it never loses its easy, digestible tone. Rated: 4/5 Mar 24, 2018 Full Review Ed Potton Times (UK) It’s frothy and fun and held together with considerable warmth by Jaoui, who treads a neat line between comedy and believability. Mar 23, 2018 Full Review Andiee Paviour Nobody's Reading This But Me At 50, Aurore is in a state of flux. She's about to become a grandmother, her ex-husband has moved on and menopausal hot flushes are driving her nuts. Rated: 4/5 Jul 7, 2019 Full Review Rachel Brook One Room With A View Never fails to be fun, yet Lenoir is also insightful - she really gets under the skin of her female characters, uncovering the fears and insecurities of aging. Rated: 3/5 Feb 14, 2019 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf I Got Life! is a joyous celebration of extraordinary ordinariness and the warmth of female solidarity. Rated: 4/5 Oct 17, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      isla s This is a reasonably light hearted film, with some amusing moments and pretty likeable characters. I could certainly see things from the main characters perspective and I liked that she was able to speak her mind at times. There are some sad scenes and some amusing ones, as I say but overall it's a reasonably easy and enjoyable watch and so I'd recommend it, yes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Liam D A charming, sweet and uplifting movie that have a great performance Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/09/22 Full Review tim s "I got life" is a realistic look at one woman's realisation that age is nothing more than a number despite her own body and various characters telling her otherwise. This includes a clever cameo appearance from French philosopher and noted author Francoise Heritier who explains on T.V. the traditional stages of life that favour a mans freedom and a woman's servitude. The film's original French title is Aurore which simply refers to its heroine , but the English title  is taken from The Nina Simone record that plays during a dream like sequence when Aurore ( Agnes Jaoui ) dances with her two infant daughters.  It is a warm , simple little film that explores the emotions of a 50 year old single, divorced mother trying to come to terms with both becoming a grandmother while experiencing the menapause. There are some amusing moments particularly a date scene in a restaurant where the staff double as opera singers during service making it almost impossible for diners to engage in any form of conversation. As a French language film it has to be engaging enough to non speaking French audiences and I got life very much pulls you into the narrative enough to forget you are reading subtitles.  Overall this film is a warm, light hearted, well acted rom com that explores a few taboo subjects really well. It's a little predictable but a nice watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was such a pleasant surprise. I don't think I would recommend it for males, but a great movie for women of a certain age. Very entertaining and the actress gave a great performance. She was so natural. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member This is kind of ok. My main reservations relate to the way men are portrayed and the lack of psychological realism. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Warm, funny, adorable portrait of a woman going through the menopause and finding love.
