The fact that we never see [Thomas'] face or his eyes, and yet still get to know him, is a magic trick that the film performs fluidly and gracefully.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The story is slight and would probably be better suited to a short subject.

Dark wit and shrewd social observation sustain this cunning, unnerving conceit by director Pierre-Paul Renders and writer Philippe Blasband.

New York Times
August 3, 2001
The film is full of ingenious details and effective character sketches (Thomas has a mother who would give Woody Allen the willies) that go a long way toward covering up its conventionalities.

While talky and gimmicky, this witty Gallic film spins a sci-fi scenario near enough to reality that anyone who frequents the information superhighway can relate.

Starts gently, with amusing drollness, then gets more serious, even provocative, without sacrificing its light touch.

Director Pierre-Paul Renders has made an interesting comment on the laughable lives we could all be living should the wired world's growth make human contact obsolete.

A stimulating and unexpectedly satisfying cinematic experiment.

August 2, 2001
The most striking thing about this subtle, refreshingly original science-fiction flick is that we never see the hero.

Quirky but unsatisfying.

Thomas in Love gives us little reason to love him back.
Top Critic
Jessica Winter
Village Voice
August 1, 2001
Dissects how human affection has been short-circuited by information-age trappings with a fusty literal-mindedness.
Michael Tunison
Boxoffice Magazine
July 27, 2001
Its bold style and cheeky visual flourishes make this idiosyncratic look at near-future lonely-hearts worth plugging into.
Steve Rhodes
Internet Reviews
July 26, 2001
The film is funny, sad and frequently downright weird with the bizarre facial paint that people in the future wear.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Peter Henne
Film Journal International
July 3, 2001
Creates an entire futuristic world without, seemingly, ever changing the camera set-up.
Harvey S. Karten
Compuserve
July 2, 2001
Intriguing idea but static and repetitious.
