Little White Lies Reviews

While the film has some scattered moments that are alternately funny and poignant, it too often turns overwrought and sentimental.

At least an hour too long; still, I found it entertaining.

A film this long should end with the audience feeling it knows the characters like old friends. Instead it ends with an outside observer delivering an insight that isn't really an insight.

Pretty easy to take, and not just because of the lovely photography of the French coast, all oyster farms and pink wine and long dinners under the trees. Because there are also these wonderful performers.

With an ensemble led by Marion Cotillard and François Cluzet, the French hit has personality to burn, and squanders most of it.

Although these friends have some fun horsing around in the water, their conflicts and rivalries make for a tense, joyless holiday that is anything but relaxing.

A movie built from strung-together set pieces.

Can tout a gorgeous setting, a group of appealing actors and a mastery of the art of wine-fueled conversation.

Handsome package and French spin on the Big Chill concept that convenes a group of friends back to their regular summer vacation spot on a sunny coast visually diverts, but audiences may wish for better company.

Inspired by The Big Chill, Canet's appealing homage makes deja vu seem like a good thing. His warm ensemble piece engages us right through to its final visceral punch.

Little White Lies' fundamental problem is that it's hard to empathize with characters who have so little empathy themselves.

Canet's melodrama has earned the snarky sobriquet "the Gallic Big Chill" on the festival circuit, but that's giving this mush way too much credit.

The din of this crew's constant caviling and passive-aggressive insulting is further intensified by the puzzling, nonstop boomer soundtrack

The specific narrative handicaps throughout are mostly too banal to warrant exegesis, though the choice of vintage pop tunes for dramatic underscoring is particularly grating.

If you've ever gone away with friends, living in close quarters day and night, you'll identify with this ensemble-dominated film

More than two hours and thirty minutes of bland images and platitude-heavy breakthroughs.

Some of the film's themes are a touch overdone but I'd strongly recommend this for lovers of great French cinema.

The clear and tangible characters become familiar to us over the course of the film, and we are privy to some of their deepest fears and longings

On the flip side of the humour lies the serious implication of the lies of the title, which are not only voiced but couched in self-denial
