Little White Lies Reviews

Laura Kern
Film Comment Magazine

Little White Lies is less a portrait of the poignance and beauty of lasting, mostly platonic relationships than a lesson in how to be a shitty friend.

"Little White Lies" is a bit too long, but has plenty of Gallic charm.

You go from sympathizing with [the characters] to wishing their time together would just end already.

By the end of the two-and-a-half hour running time, the combined efforts of the talented actors on board manage to produce a satisfying emotional finale.

A sprawling, initially engaging French comedy-drama that became a hit in France but ultimately underwhelms.

A bloated, melodramatic and ultimately emotionally impenetrable affair, centering around a collection of Parisian friends whose bonds are tested when one of their group is involved in an automobile accident.

The script is banal, but the acting company and the locations are easy on the eyes.

I just looked over the notepad on which I jotted my thoughts about the movie and I see that, at one point, for reasons I no longer remember, I was solving a math problem.

Who needs visual fireworks when you can just shoot a close-up of Marion Cotillard?

The overall tone of "Little White Lies" feels off, or maybe it just doesn't translate to American audiences.

At times, it's amusing. At times, it's tragic. At times, it's romantic. But, like many vacations, it's way, way too long.

As the movie wears on ... the melodrama amps up to a final scene capable of draining any remaining pathos.

Little White Lies wants to capture something momentous and meaningful in these people's lives. But ultimately it's hard to care.

There's a fly-on-the-wall quality to it that adds a voyeuristic zing to the proceedings and gives this French take on "The Big Chill" its particular warmth.

Reeling Reviews

...plays a bit like "The Big Chill"...with Dujardin in the Costner role. It's too long and not all the stories work as well as others, but it does work as a series of shallow character studies coming together for a more in-depth group portrait.

Starts well but slides, and should have dropped at least one of the subplots.

It lasts an astonishing 154 minutes, pushing on so far past its expiration date that you'll squirm uncomfortably for the final act.

It's just that, when it's over, 2 1/2 hours seems too big an investment for just pretty good.

The movie is 154 minutes long. It probably doesn't need to be that long, but there's an advantage to sinking into this milieu, growing familiar with the characters and learning their stories.

The trouble with Guillaume Canet's French gloss on The Big Chill is that it has no underlying chill.
