Time Out Chicago

Barratier (Les Choristes) seems to be making a bid to be France's new master of sweet nostalgia with a musical bent.

Destined to be one of the season's most energetic white elephants.

A simplistic, uncomplicated multi-storied exploration of the French depression.

big, overwrought melodrama that celebrates the joy of big, overwrought melodramas

Charlotte Weekly

A frothy concoction that thrives on the improvisational creativity found on a stage.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

It is a musical comedy/drama set in another time and place that asks you to give yourself over... If you're willing to play along the result is magnifique.

Elegant, reality-tinged silliness.

Creative Loafing

It's clearly old-fashioned entertainment, and while the blue-hairs will dig it, I suspect many of us with brown, blonde, black or red hair will embrace it as well.

Windy City Times

A stereotypical 'little' French film that nevertheless comes wrapped in an awfully sweet package.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Those who like their movies (a) cute and (b) in French will go oui, oui, oui all the way home after spending 120 minutes with this rose-tinted homage to the neighborhood music halls of France...

You'll leave the theater feeling really, really good.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

This flaky French import can't stick to one story and can't find a way to resolve its myriad story lines in the proper fashion.

Oh my goodness, I didn't expect this: Paris 36 is The Muppet Show in, you know, Paris in 1936.

Paris 36 is one of those exasperating movies which can't decide what it want to be and, as a result, ends up being not very much as all.

It's a complete confection -- handsome, sentimental. In the end, it works as entertainment.

FILMINK (Australia)

Paris 36 is ill-conceived, predictable, overlong, flatly directed, over-acted, uninvolving, corny, riddled with trite music and smugly self-regarding. Not an unqualified success, one might say.

Des Partridge
Daily Telegraph (Australia)

Some of the musical numbers are way too elaborate to have been presented in a suburban music hall, but if you want reality, this isn't the movie you're looking for.
