Assayas demonstrates an assured light touch here, drawing expert comic performances from Cheung, Richard and Ogier while using a 16mm hand-held camera to lend the film a live, experimental quality.

French cineastes will appreciate the writing and direction of Oliver Assayas.

Ultimately, Irma Vep doesn't quite have the courage of its convictions, but still provides plenty of scathing satire on the state of French cinema.

Ends up a knowing, and fairly lucid, portrait of the filmmaking experience, warts and all.

A movie-movie that's very up-to-the-minute, is one of the year's best films.

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

An arguably brilliant film with the noncontradictory potential to bore half its intended audience and enchant the other half.

A film of such spontaneity, freshness and breezy chaos that you feel as if it were assembled from happy accidents and inspired, seat-of- the-pants improvisation.

San Francisco Examiner

Assayas' terrific camerawork and layered character study that unfolds in documentary-like fashion makes a strong case for the future of independent filmmaking as a vibrant force in cinema.

Movies about making movies are never quite as interesting as the people who make them think they're going to be.
