Consensus: Low-key to a fault, Let It Rain blends subtle political commentary with smart, thoroughly French comedy.

Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post

Not a laugh riot, but neither is it played for melodrama.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

The character conflicts are so decorously handled that after a while the whole enterprise begins to seem more like a good waiter than a good story.

It's graceful in presenting its ideas, and what emerges is not a polemic but a kind of snapshot of modern-day concerns.

At times Let It Rain recalls one of those Katharine Hepburn comedies where the New Woman gets cut down to size so as not to intimidate the Old-School Men. Yet the film so likably deflates the pompous and pumps up the humble that it's hard not to like.

A movie in which everyone was this disappointed, and nobody changed, would be a very sad film, and that's not Jaoui's intent. She's not a cynic but a humanist and, by the end of the film, most of these people have taken some steps toward change.

This one?s a slow starter but your patience is rewarded. It?s a subtle story of self-importance with a Eric Rohmer feel about it but without the humour or great… More

A gentle tone, likeable characters, rural locations and unassuming narrative belies explorations on feminism, racism, misogyny and fidelity to name a few. Funny… More
