Copacabana Reviews

Glenn Dunks

The film finds occasional big laughs out of Huppert's observations of those around her and eventually warms the audience to this character.

...entertaining yet far-from-engrossing...

Slant Magazine

Copacabana proves that Isabelle Huppert can do anything, including starring in a trivial mother-daughter dramedy that's beneath her considerable talents.

Empire Magazine Australasia

With a Gallic twist, Copacabana is a quirky feel-good comedy for the kook in us all.

Jason Di Rosso
MovieTime, ABC Radio National

An emotionally intelligent film this, with a keen sense of rhythm and balance from writer director Marc Fitoussi, who draws his characters with affection but never sentimentality.

Peter Galvin

Shot in grim, flat tones that's more in keeping with the style of the so-called 'mumble-core' indie genre, Copacabana is actually very smart and very funny in a brittle kind of way.

The Age (Australia)

The film maintains an amiable and warm through line about Babou's desire to reconnect with her disapproving daughter, but the real joy here comes from watching (Isabelle) Huppert hustle.

Could have benefited from extra editing to lift the more leaden moments.

Concrete Playground

Fun, affirming and supremely joyful, Copacabana is a superb reminder that life is about the journey, not the destination.

Urban Cinefile

A pleasant enough interlude, Copacabana doesn't actually get us there ... to Copacabana or to 'there' as a film, even though everyone does a great job.

Cinema Autopsy

The lack of cynicism from the filmmakers and the lead character means that Copacabana ends up being an extremely charming and sweet film, pleasingly revealing yet another side to the chameleon-like Isabelle Huppert.
