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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Isabelle Huppert creates an intriguing character in this film.

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.

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.
