      Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle My Donkey, My Lover & I isn’t going to break the mold, but it’s an easy stride of a film that’s bubbling with joy. Rated: 3/5 Sep 27, 2022 Full Review Kristen Page-Kirby Washington Post With its easy pace and genial company, “My Donkey, My Lover & I” is a journey worth taking, even if, at the end of the day, there’s no cozy French inn waiting for you. Rated: 3/4 Jul 27, 2022 Full Review Kyle Smith Wall Street Journal The film is a genial, summery excursion that makes the most of its star Laure Calamy, as a Parisian schoolteacher who pursues her married lover and his family on a multiday hike in the Cévennes mountains in southern France. Jul 22, 2022 Full Review James Verniere Boston Herald See the great Laure Calamy act while tending to a donkey in this delightful film. It's even more temperamental than French movie stars. Rated: A- Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Laura Hiros Rincón de cine "My Donkey, my lover and I" or its original name in French "Antoinette dans Les Cévennes", it is in plain words a delicious French comedy that will still your heart. [Full review in Spanish]. Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Hope Madden MaddWolf Rather than judge or deny or even truly mock a middle-aged romantic’s starry-eyed quest for love, My Lover, My Donkey & I sees value in it.

      JOHN S Film explores genuinely the nature of relationships. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/07/22 Full Review A funny sweet endearing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/01/22 Full Review Nicola Beautifully done film that hits all the right notes. So sweet and unconventional in so many ways. It was refreshing to see! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/27/22 Full Review Rebecca movie was more about the donkey Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/24/22 Full Review Diana G B A charming story. Loved the scenery and Patrick the donkey! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/23/22 Full Review Raph G Good classic enjoyable French story, though slightly over-relying on Laure Calamy's performance. Quite edgy where you wouldn't necessarily expect it - she's a stalker - the stakes dissolved the second Calamy steps foot in the regional park. A tad too quick as the movie finishes its course in a too predictable feel-good manner. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
