Lessons of Darkness

[Its] cheery characters are ultimately stuck wending their way through wackily contrived scenarios fit for a sitcom.

L'auberge espagnole or The Spanish apartment is a lovable, cozy mess just like its architectural setting.

European Union navel-gazing plus braying youth worship equals L' Auberge Espagnol.

There isn't enough story or character development to make this into the breathtaking escapade Klapisch seems to have aspired to.

The episodic L'auberge Espangnole is like a younger and European version of Friends.

Não funciona apenas como retrato da globalização e do choque de culturas, mas também como a jornada pessoal de um jovem rumo à definição de sua vida

Yet another example of writer/director Klapisch's way of finding fresh new insights within the most mundane of circumstances.

Jam! Movies

Klapisch has imbued the film with such energy and such insight that his themes linger on the palate, like the aftertaste of a fine French or Spanish or Italian or German or whatever wine.

It's a rarity, a comedy about young adults that does not laugh at their inexperience, and remains accessible even to old fogies.

A film whose limitations are the same as its appeal: It's a bauble.

Since for most of us, it's too late to pack a suitcase, spend a year in beautiful Barcelona, and fall so easily in and out of love, "L'Auberge Espagnole" is a lovely cinematic diversion.

Crams a whole season of Real World fights, flings, cover-ups and send-off parties into one bloated pastry of a film.

Even when I was in grad school, I'd have found this film excruciatingly long, juvenile, self-indulgent and implausible.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's apt to leave American viewers with a depressing sense of cultural inferiority when these characters are weighed against the classless, clueless, horny drunks that populate our own equivalents of Klapisch's film.

Think of L'Auberge Espagnole, a French comedy-drama about a gang of international exchange students living together in Barcelona, as Friends -- the International Edition.
