      Richard Porton Chicago Reader [La Petite Lili] remains a decidedly halfhearted attempt to rework the romantic entanglements of The Seagull. Sep 29, 2017 Full Review Dallas Morning News Rated: B Jun 18, 2005 Full Review Marta Barber Miami Herald A film that adapts the basic Russian classic and then breaks away in more ways than just the setting. Rated: 3/4 Jan 14, 2005 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com those hoping for a dramatic finish are going to come up short Rated: 3/5 Jul 23, 2005 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com It's a simple story, but it's sort of satisfying to see the way they come full circle, using 'the movie within the movie' concept to wrap everything up. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 17, 2005 Full Review Frank Swietek One Guy's Opinion A rather slight work, but especially for those acquainted with 'The Seagull' it should prove an intriguing exercise in translation. Rated: B Jun 13, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This is a good film, very much in the French style--the middle class family in a chateau with gorgeous surrounds and witty insightful conversation. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Definitely not "Swimming Pool" Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a film where everyone concerned obsesses to one degree or another over the films of a newcomer. Trouble is, there's no real evidence that anyone should be. What's worse is that all the hullabaloo over Art and the Meaning of It All is tiresome and pretentious. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretentious and too long. Tries to say something meaningful about relationships but ends up being as shallow as its characters. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member If you can ignore the 'staginess' of the film, it becomes a rather delightful little story. It's the classic film within in a film structure about a guy who has a mad crush on a girl, makes a film about it...Of course its about more than making a film -- it's about the truths, lies and pretension both on and off the screen, and finding authenticity somewhere in between. And speaking of crushes, I'm not ashamed to admit I have a fourth wall crush on Ludivine Sagnier. This film exhibits one of her better performances, and I would say saves the film from becoming a self-reflective, pretentious, and heartless affair. Julie Depardieu, whom I also enjoy, brings a strong, earthly reality to the story, a nice contrast to Sagnier's etherealness. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Considering the great actors involved in this film, such as Ludivine Sagnier, Julie Depardieu and Nicole Garcia, it could have been better.
