Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 Jan 22, 2013 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Jan 22, 2013 Full Review Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle Comedic actor Franois Damiens mines but never mocks Markus' awkwardness, thereby creating a winning portrait in decency. His tracing, with the ever-luminous Tautou, of the slow bloom of new love is a thing of understated beauty. Rated: 3/5 Apr 27, 2012 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Yes, variations of this story has been done many times before. But I love the sincerity, the humor, and the heart that permeates this entire picture. Rated: 4/5 Aug 20, 2022 Full Review Joseph Walsh CineVue Predictably whimsical and lightweight. Rated: 2/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Lynden Barber Limelight Co-directors David and Stephane Foenkinos (adapting the former's novel) ... play cute, shying away from ironic observation and relying too heavily on charm.

Dani G Nice romcom. Nothing special, very basic, but maybe the french style is refreshing when you compare it to the same american romcoms, over and over again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review isla s This is a very engrossing, fast paced, immersive film which I really enjoyed. I liked it for the variety of characters and the fact it seemed to tell a well known characters backstory - I won't say anymore so as not to provide spoilers. For a good bit of escapism, you could do a lot worse than watch this. Its obviously aimed at (and is suitable for) young kids but I reckon adults can enjoy it too. Well, I'm 39 and I really quite enjoyed it. The songs/musical score is good (fun) and the plot I thought was perhaps slightly cheesy but mostly quite interesting and fun. We need more such genuinely fun, escapist films like this in times like these I feel and so I would definitely recommend it to others. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Mike J Sonic I think it's so weird to be a movie theater movie star theater Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/29/22 Full Review Audience Member I'm currently stuck three quarters into this idiotically self-satisfied movie trying to debate whether to watch it to the end. The idea that Tatou's character, (too too horribly thin here - somebody feed her) falls for that lumpen buffoon in his beige jumper and overall toothy goofiness is utterly ludicrous and above all, Not In Any Way Entertaining. Apparently we are supposed to find this gauche 'Swede' amusing and 'decent' but that seems to be some kind of in-joke of the director's at the audience's expense. Everyone in this film needed to ask more of themselves - and it. Tragic, but not in a good way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It starts good, but it loses as it advances. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Deadpan rom-com with a detached style and narrative that makes for a beautiful and sensitivly handled post-bereavement catholicon with a Parisian backdrop. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
