Demy's 1961 bittersweet musical reverie starring Anouk Aimee is one of the most brilliant works of the French New Wave.

The Ophüls question ("Quelle heure est-il?") is always in the air, along with the tilting, craning and tracking that link and sever feelings

It is offbeat, with shafts of tender feeling and truth. But trying to touch on too many subjects makes the film uneven.

Very beautifully shot, in widescreen and luminous black-and-white, it is also formally astonishing, with all the minor characters serving as variations on the central couple.

If Lola is not a masterwork, its general polish and intent augur a bright future for the 31-year-old Mr. Demy.

Before he gained renown with The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Demy made his feature debut with a prequel of sorts, which was his elegant homage to the films of Max Ophuls.

Jacques Demy's 1961 classic Lola is a breathtaking reminder of what magic in the movies used to mean. It's pure enchantment.

An ode to yearning and enchantment -- a valentine to France, to beautiful women, to the foolish but delicious notions of romance that we receive from Hollywood.

It is an undeniably thin story altogether, but Lola skates by on endless amounts of charm.

The film represents an idealized view of reality that will strike some viewers (including this one) as overly sentimental.

A delightfully melancholy romance of coincidence, starring European film's epitome of sophisticated sexuality.

There is something gentle and elusive going on here, and you should catch the movie at long last even if you've seen it before.

Demy is best known stateside for his wondrous musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but some consider this, his debut feature, to be his best work.
