Consensus: While the script may not always be worthy of her gifts, Catherine Deneuve's performance ultimately offers more than enough reason to watch On My Way.

[Deneuve] conveys in every scene a convincing and touching openness to life as experienced in the moment.

A droll if minor dramatic comedy about a woman who goes out for a pack of smokes and ends up on an odyssey of self-discovery through the back roads and tiny villages of rural France.

[A] loosely structured, sporadically engaging film, which serves primarily as a star vehicle for French screen icon Catherine Deneuve.

Unfortunately, Deneuve's performance is not enough to elevate On My Way from the dredges of narrative tedium.
