Thomas in Love (Thomas est amoureux) Reviews

A film in which the camera's point of view never changes can start to feel claustrophobic. But the originality of the concept and the quality of the performances help to compensate.

The last few minutes of this movie are strangely moving. What leads up to them is shot through with dark humor and scathing satire.

What's surprising is how easy it is to sit still for.

While that leads to a conclusion that seems straight out of a student film, Renders does effectively create a sense of claustrophobia by plunking his audience down in the middle of Thomas' world.

For a film that takes place entirely within the confines of the main character's computer screen, the Belgian Thomas in Love is amazingly interesting stuff.

Thomas in Love touches on so many subjects and is so visually interesting to watch that it won't just enrich your weekend movie plans, but stimulate your way of thinking as well.

The Dutch director Pierre Paul Renders ingeniously conjures the image of a control freak society that is sinister in its very playfulness.

The best and worst thing about the tale is that we never actually see Thomas. We only view events from his first-person and isolated perspective. The effect is both alienating and compelling.

At 97 minutes, [Renders and Blasband] manage to get about all they possibly can out of this unusual narrative ploy.

One of the year's small finds -- that rare art-house date movie.

An intriguing work about modern loneliness, mediated relationships, cybersex, and the narcissism of cocooned individuals.

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.

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

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.
