Movie Info

At the age of 20, Martin leaves his home town and comes to Paris, where he fortunately becomes a model by chance. He meets Alice, his brother's friend, and falls in love with her. They start a passionate relationship, although Martin remains very mysterious about his past and the reasons why he left his family. But when Alice tells him she's pregnant, he is suddenly almost driven to madness, as his past comes back to his mind. Alice will now do anything she can to help him.

An involving love story between two emotionally damaged outsiders.

The sheer neurotic intensity of Techine's characters -- characteristically stretching both backward and forward in time, as in a Faulkner novel--holds one throughout, as does Techine's masterful direction and many of the other performances.

Alice and Martin is not to be missed, particularly in this endless lull of summer.

For all the increasing sophistication of Téchiné's technique, the emotions he deals with are basic, and all the more powerful for it.

Techine keeps a tight rein on his actors' dramatics.

Alice et Martin has its faults, but there's some real meat here, in the performances and direction.

Binoche and newcomer Loret give committed performances, but Alice and Martin's romance is never completely convincing.

This staid, somber film is heartening proof that what doesn't kill us might indeed make us stronger.

Andre Téchiné extracts superb performances and finds drama in the everyday moments of human interaction.

An excellent cast goes far to redeem >Alice and Martin.

Binoche's character is sketchily drawn. Although she gives an admirable, unshowy performance, her role is underwritten, with the script frequently using her as the engine that propels the plot.

The movie is long, but doesn't feel that way, and despite a dearth of interesting visuals after the first 20 minutes, it makes for a welcome change of pace from Hollywood

Its mystery resonates long after the film ends.

Falls just shy of greatness.

Director André Téchiné here eschews that French lightness and opts instead for what is apparently supposed to pass for psychological profundity.

This long-winded, uninteresting, uninvolving and tedious French pic is another example of a filmmaker (Andre Techine) who's too involved with one of his cast members

With his thirteenth feature, André Téchiné conducts a masterly dissection of male hysteria.

Everything that's wrong with French cinema is on display in Alice et Martin.

I was disappointed to learn that the whole drama hinged on a single traumatic event, but in the meantime, I was happy to spend time with the people.

A combination mystery and character study in which the more we learn, the less we care.
