We watch these young people as they experiment, grow and learn, and when the movie finally ends after two hours, we're sorry to leave them behind.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

There are potentially interesting characters that go underdeveloped and even more potentially fascinating ideas that are given short shrift.

Xavier, the movie's center, is unfortunately one of the less interesting people in L'Auberge Espagnole, but the lovable chaos that swirls about him makes up for that.

Does start off slowly and is consistently hobbled by Duris' bland performance and the equally bland character he portrays, but eventually it settles into a pleasing rhythm and mood.

It features four of the most erotically and emotionally delectable female performances I have seen in one film this year.

Un cuadro honesto e imaginativo sobre las expectativas juveniles, los amores imposibles, los enredos del crecer, el descubrimiento de otros mundos.

Writer/director Cédric Klapisch plays the youthful-exuberance card for all it's worth, often coming up with a winning hand.

Much of the charm of this film is in its understanding of the great fluidity of romantic relationships -- especially before people decide to settle down.

I party heartier than these generically attractive twentysomethings.

I was waiting for some massive disaster to strike, for lessons to be learned, & for some sort of change or closure to develop. Damn French filmmakers.

All in all, Klapisch's style approximates the excitement of the French New Wave of the late 1950s.

As he did in When the Cat's Away, Klapisch demonstrates an understanding for the way young people caught between the demands of adulthood and their lingering adolescence behave.

You know how some people try to cram 48 hours into a 24-hour day? Well, those people now have a movie to call their own.

It's hard to complain about a film that combines Paris and the city in the world that is most like it.

Nitrate Online

French writer-director Cédric Klapisch's movies are fun to watch because he's got a gift for achieving a seemingly impossible balance. He can vividly capture the uniqueness of his locales (like Paris or Barcelona) but make his stories appealingly universa

You've seen this before, and you'll see it again, but L'Auberge Espagnole is a pleasant enough way to spend a couple of hours.

Whether you're a frat guy from the '50s or live in a 21st-century coed dorm, L'Auberge Espagnole's celebration of a certain time, a certain place, a certain community is engagingly recognizable.

Despite the movie's lack of narrative discipline, it grows on you, in part because it's so easy to identify with these characters.

Warm without sentimentality, funny without jokes, rich in character without caricature, it hits that rare spot where we receive intense pleasure at the recognition of truth.
