What the movie lacks visually, it makes up for with the performances, especially by Lindon, who leads us on a journey we want to stick with even if we can't fully understand.

In one sense it's what might be called 'typically French,' an exquisitely observed fable of bourgeois life that is mordant, witty and yet low-key. In another sense, it's what might be called 'nuts.'

An intriguing study of identity, marriage and, perhaps, madness.

Leaps from a gripping identity thriller into a strange yet equally involving adventure about the bounds of self-knowledge and the incredible liberty of disregarding them.

An elegantly acted psychological puzzle, it's like watching a nervous breakdown from the inside out.

A profound allegory about the tension between isolation and intimacy.

Spins an agitated mystery well beyond its minimalist starting point, offering up giant questions about sanity and identity on its trip from the bathroom mirror.

A deliciously unsettling, beautifully sustained enigma, a film of much beauty and flawless performances, especially from Vincent Lindon in one of his most demanding roles.

Part absurdist comedy about the institution of marriage, part paranoid Kafkaesque fantasy, it's a minor-key reverie on the way our own lives can sometimes feel alien to us.

...Recalls the "everyday suspense" films of Roman Polanski and the existential woe of Michelangelo Antonioni.

What does it all mean? We are never quite sure. All we learn from this relentless saga of mental and physical solitude are the many varieties of suffering one can endure when one feels alone in the universe.

This narrative feature debut by Emmanuel Carrere, based on his own novel, is deliberately open-ended, but however one interprets the outcome, the film reminds us how fragile intimacy is.

La Moustache, the first feature by novelist Emmanuel Carrere, begins as a comedy, but grows darker and darker by the frame. It's like a Hitchcock thriller filtered through the mind of Austrian firebrand Michael Haneke, who gave us Cache.

La Moustache dissolves into a meandering annoyance that takes us from Paris to Hong Kong and back again.

Emmanuel Carrere's psychological mystery is a surreal reflection on perception, reality and memory.

A successful novelist and restrained actor's director, Carrére makes the transformation of a silly marital argument into a cosmic upheaval look easy, and profound as well.

At its most stimulating, Moustache is a keen glimpse into a marriage that appears perfect on the surface but when examined shows its deficiencies.
