A Single Girl Reviews

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A fascinating revival of the French New Wave for a very 1990's slice-of-life film.

A Single Girl delivers 80 unbroken and ultimately irritating minutes in the life of a pretty hotel waitress (Virginie Ledoyen).

A stunning demonstration of moral and existential suspense in relation to duration, much like Agnes Varda's 1961 Cleo From 5 to 7.

Even though nothing much happens during the course of the movie (Valerie spends over half the running time wandering around the inside of a hotel), this is a thoroughly engrossing motion picture.

Benoit Jacquot's small, dazzling film A Single Girl is so buoyant, sharp-eyed and casually sexy it comes closer than any recent movie to capturing the essence of youth itself.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A hypnotic French import with next to no plot to interfere with its mesmerizing portrait of the moment to moment stuff of life.

Jacquot finds unexpected and intriguing drama in the daily routine of a contemporary young woman.

While A Single Girl ends without a sense of resolution, we do feel rewarded for having been in the presence of so lovely an actress as Ledoyen, from whom more is sure to be heard.

What's really terrific about A Single Girl is its simplicity.

We are led to believe that Valarie's experiences during this hour and all that quality meditative time she spends waiting for the elevator help her to reach her important decision. But it would be presumptuous to think we have learned anything about her.

A Single Girl shines because of Ledoyen, but sputters in not taking her character anyplace.

Reel Film Reviews

...if you were to fast-forward all the scenes where there is no talking, just walking, you'd be left with a very short movie.

Boston Phoenix

Photographed mostly in tight traveling shots with an occasional long shot evoking a sense of foreboding and entrapment, the movie is claustrophobic, harried, sexually charged.
