      Jake Cole Slant Magazine Jacques Rivette’s films possess a certain lilting quality that sits in a lineage with movie musicals, but it wasn’t until 1995’s Up, Down, Fragile that one of his works could be outright classified as such. Apr 7, 2023 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker The acting veers between mischievous awkwardness and theatrical precision, and Rivette’s sly direction alternates to match... Sep 26, 2022 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times What Mr. Rivette has concocted might be described as a lighthearted existential romp in which life is a playful dialogue between reality and fantasy, between musical comedy and drama, and you never know when one will turn into the other. Rated: 4/5 May 20, 2003 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid It's a film of wandering lightness, like a twirl on a warm afternoon, and it ranks with the director's best. Rated: 4/4 Apr 22, 2023 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 4/5 Jul 14, 2005 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The title comes from the markings found on packages delivered by the po service.
