Consensus: Claude Lelouch has crafted an engaging thriller about murder and romance with plenty of stylistic panache.

Jonathan F. Richards

Lelouch is now 71 years old, and I bet he's never had as much fun with a film. Roman de Gare threads plots and characters and twists together like a demented weaver.

Even if the game isn't entirely successful, it's fun to play along.

Forty years after his breakout success as a filmmaker, Claude Lelouch makes something of a comeback with his playful and sexy whodunit, Roman de Gare.

Don't go to the theater expecting too much and you can't help but leave with a smile on your face.

The air of Gallic nonchalance ensures you have a lot of fun watching Pinon and Ardant match wits. It's Dana, however, who anchors the story.

a quite well plotted and acted thriller.

Seemed promising to me, but ended up as just another not-so-bad drama. It's okay for one time watch though.
