Movie Info

Now in her early sixties, former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family's restaurant. What begins as a quick drive to clear her head turns into a full-fledged road trip, and along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love...

[Deneuve] conveys in every scene a convincing and touching openness to life as experienced in the moment.

Deneuve, fine as always, subtly emphasizes the character's self-destructive side, providing a little medicine to help the sugar go down.

You can tell Deneuve is relishing the chance to play not a great beauty, not a national legend, but a simple, human basket case - a woman who has been her own worst enemy for so long that she's ready to give up the fight.

A droll if minor dramatic comedy about a woman who goes out for a pack of smokes and ends up on an odyssey of self-discovery through the back roads and tiny villages of rural France.

These series of vignettes still leave an impression, thanks in no small part to Deneuve.

"On My Way" finds Deneuve warm and natural, completely open and yet subtle, able to suggest much with little, allowing us to read her thoughts.

[A] loosely structured, sporadically engaging film, which serves primarily as a star vehicle for French screen icon Catherine Deneuve.

Never less than watchable, but bar Deneuve's presence, the film rarely coalesces dramatically.

Unfortunately, Deneuve's performance is not enough to elevate On My Way from the dredges of narrative tedium.

A beautifully observant meander through the difficulties and discoveries of wise but still confused advanced age, led by a gorgeous, vital, 70-odd Catherine Deneuve.

The film presents a lovely opportunity to reflect on the 70-year-old Deneuve's fantastic career and how the once beautiful young star has aged as gracefully as her acting.

Bercot starts with a role for a mature woman and provides Deneuve one for a great actress to showcase her lowercase gifts and talent for indicating tenderness.

Take this French road trip with the great Deneuve. She is delightful as sexy granny and former beauty queen.

It's a playful, loose film with no queening allowed.

Pleasant and predictable, this is nevertheless a splendid showcase for Catherine Deneuve in one of her warmer roles.

A road trip venture crafted especially for Catherine Deneuve, this testy and at times offbeat French import, more ramshackle than pleasingly ambling, never gels in a meaningful manner.

This offbeat gem of a road trip film...is a love letter to France's reigning queen of cinema and a more satisfying experience than Spain's highly touted "Gloria."

Audience Reviews for On My Way

Bercot's firm direction and some amusing moments aren't enough to redeem a cliché-ridden script that has no structure and is full of poorly developed characters, and it seeks to provide some feeling of apparent resolution that cannot hide the loose ends and lack of real conclusion.
