Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The director himself admits that it's an unsatisfying conclusion to the series, though a pretty good film in its own right."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"This installment is as lightweight as the others and is still pleasing even though it has lost some of its freshness and spontaneity."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It brings to a satisfying end the story of an unforgettable character whose lifelong pursuit of romance and responsibility in a world seemingly bent on keeping him down may have finally found fruition."
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"As do some childhood friends, Antoine Doinel has grown away from us."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"strictly for Truffaut fans, who have grown up with Antoine Doniel improvising his way through the Bohemian sections of Paris"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"The results are more interesting than satisfying; it is a film more thought than felt."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Love on the Run is a cinematic valentine from Francois Truffaut to Antoine Doinel."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
