Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jaoui's debt to Woody Allen is more glaring than ever: some of the characters are just a bundle of neuroses."
‑ Alex Dudok de Wit, Time Out
"Be warned. We are issuing a top-level quirk alert. This is not a drill."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"There are some nice individual moments here, but they all appear amid a sea of wacky randomness."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"A delightful French dramedy about young love, middle-age, and the continuing quest for an intimate and lasting relationship."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"French writer-director-actress Agnes Jaoui returns with a multi-generational cast who contemplate the chance of fairytale romances in Paris."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
"An amiable if slightly laboured ensemble comedy."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Amuses in spite of its narrative convolutions and surfeit of secondary characters."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"The point of it all is never quite made clear."
‑ T'Cha Dunlevy, Montreal Gazette
"An accomplished actress herself, Jaoui draws committed performances from her ensemble that effectively ground the breezy material."
‑ Curtis Woloschuk, Total Film
"I would love to see Jaoui make another grownup Parisian film with Bacri as the star - perhaps playing the president of the republic. He is underused."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"[Jaoui's] among the most consistently playful and introspective (without navel gazing) of filmmakers."
‑ Kent Turner,
