Consensus: An observant drama-comedy about self absorption.

Richard Nilsen
Arizona Republic

The pleasure of the film, as in many French films from Renoir to Rohmer, is in the exactitude of observation, the accuracy of the portrait and the elegance of the writing.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

[Has] a light, sometimes hilarious touch.

Cole Smithey

"Look at Me" is a wholesome work of fully rounded dramaturgy that spins on a gyroscope of sustained emotional momentum.

Both an implicit protest against the blindness of power and an equally fervent protest against the acquiescence of men and women who are too weak or too compromised to stand up for themselves -- that is, most people.

Ann Hornaday
Washington Post

Jaoui sets her wryly observant sights on family, artistic ambition and the tyranny of physical appearance, and the result is a bright, briskly moving film whose modest scale belies the universality of its themes.

Examines a variety of questions, such as superficiality versus substance, materialism versus self-worth, and taking advantage of others versus forming sincere relationships.

At best, a most watchable character study of lives that are more interesting than compelling.

An overrated mound of misery.

Michael Ferraro
Film Threat

Sadly, too much focus is spent on showing character traits that any kind of coherent story or compassion for characters is destroyed.

Exposes human relations they way they sadly happen to be. an impressive, mature, bitter and thought-provoking drama.

Sad movie about a girl and her father. Well done.
John Ballantine
Not the best to come out of the French cinema lately but not a bad Sunday afternoon flick to think about self image.
