Consensus: Like its predecessor L'Auberge Espagnole, Russian Dolls is charmingly breezy and light.

Marta Barber

The cast of renegades is as appealing as ever.

Seattle Times

It's an effortlessly charming ensemble, and Klapisch's characters (most of them anyway) reveal depths of feeling that compensate for the film's lightweight tone and too-long running time.

Christopher Campbell

Anyone who loved L'Auberge Espagnole should at least like its sequel as something of a guilty fling.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

For those who saw and loved L'Auberge Espagnole, Russian Dolls automatically becomes of interest, but writer-director Cedric Klapisch can't quite make the case for it as a stand-alone experience.

[Xavier] turns this film into more of a self-fixated memoir, less of a blithe ensemble piece.

David Noh
Film Journal International

His directorial hand is so handsomely assured and his cast so charming that it's easy to succumb to his let-me-entertain-you blandishments

Klapisch has made something deliciously close to a nature documentary about the young, the foolish, and the alive.

Fluffily enjoyable.

Christopher Null

Essentially this is Espagnole on repeat, as if the lessons from the former film had been fully expunged after five years on ice.
