Café de Flore Reviews

Quickflix

You may not ultimately agree with Valée's big spiritual pay off (it may be interpreted as a mere excuse for a middle-aged man to have an affair) but it's undeniably gripping, creative, and brash cinema.

Café de Flore very much floored me and its enigmatic charm continued to weasel its way into my mind long after it was over.

As abstract as the film is in theory, it is brought together with the conclusiveness of finishing a puzzle with no missing pieces.

Affectionate, sexy, thought-provoking, devastating, beautiful, bittersweet, life-affirming... Cafe de Flore is all that, and more. See it, listen to it, believe it.

Think of a fusion of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Crash, The Lovely Bones and The Tree of Life.

Haunting and heartbreaking, director Jean-Marc Vallée's romantic drama is an electrifying multilayered experience.

A challenging, heartfelt but often confusing drama that seesaws between the Paris of 1969 and contemporary Montreal.

As these parallel narratives unfold, separated by time and space but conjoined by their shared motifs of love, loss, jealousy and obsession, hints emerge of other, less strictly thematic connections between them.

This is a superbly acted drama that packs a powerfully emotional punch, though a late-blooming plot development ultimately stretches credulity and threatens to undo the film's dramatic impact.

Drama so perfectly wrought is hard to come by. Vallée and his stellar cast have carved out a challenging, emotionally rich film which is not shaken easily.

It's themes of spirituality, religion and love eternal in an increasingly secular and jaded world is wonderfully presented and touching in its tangibility, although it often ventures into brazen territory.

Café De Flore is a tragic, beautiful tale of love remixed through time; where the chords resonate true in every remixed incarnation.

Vallee tells the stories in an impressionistic way; Antoine's side of things occasionally verges on Tree of Life territory.

Playful, painful, willfully strange, deeply emotional and deliberately, delightfully obscure at times, Café de Flore, from French-Canadian writer-director Jean-Marc Vallée (C.R.A.Z.Y.), is a puzzle-film par excellence.

There's something quite haunting about the film, and perhaps more than one viewing is required to sort it all out.

Cafe de Flore lays out an open-ended obstacle course for heart and mind. Stay the distance and so much will stay with you for some time.
