Steve Macfarlane
Slant Magazine

Jean-Marc Vallée deploys a pretty sweeping arsenal of clichés in shoving his camera through the characters' streams of consciousness.

The double-barrelled plot demonstrates great imagination. It's a shame that it amounts to so little.

The film's delicately curated textures are flushed down the toilet of narrative contrivance.

The List

Vallée appears content to put his audience through the emotional wringer for no discernible purpose, and the result is a film that is objectionable and ultimately pointless.

Mike Scott
Times-Picayune

An intriguingly unconventional drama that revels in dreamy interludes, stream-of-consciousness montages and weighty drama - but that never lives up to its stylistic promise.

An overlong film that half works.

Goes from intriguing to irritating.

Feels less like a movie than like a cinematic jigsaw puzzle whose agitation undermines the very continuity it wants to portray.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

This mushy, mystical French-Canadian melodrama tries to make parallel a pair of love stories: one between preteens with Down syndrome in 1969 Paris, and the second between a Quebecois DJ and his new amour some 40 years later.

Remove the subtitles, and it's one of Cameron Crowe's head-in-the-clouds dramas, as scripted by M Night Shyamalan...

Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's terribly long and repetitive for so delicately dreamy a diptych, and at times the modern-day story feels like little more than a drawn-out apologia for the wandering male gaze.

Disappointing, frustrating nonsense.

Compuserve

Acting and soundtrack are spot-on but the frequent jump-cuts and lack of a compelling comparison between families work against the film's success.

The cumulative effect is more tedious than profound.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

The French story is fascinating and beautifully acted, the French-Canadian one is romantic daytime TV drivel, and the links between them - mystic, metaphysical, musical - do not lead towards resonance or enlightenment.

An overlong, emotionally shallow study of so-called 'twin flames', possible reincarnation and learning to let go of love.

Decade-hopping metaphysical romance descends into overwrought histrionics.

After an exasperatingly lengthy build-up, the secret link between the two stories turns out to be utterly ridiculous, leaving a bad taste at the close.

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