Time Out (L' Emploi du temps) Reviews

I found myself growing more and more frustrated and detached as Vincent became more and more abhorrent.

Time Out, which looks great but moves like molasses, is more interesting than truly involving.

The drama discloses almost nothing.

I admire the closing scenes of the film, which seem to ask whether our civilization offers a cure for Vincent's complaint.

In its treatment of the dehumanizing and ego-destroying process of unemployment, Time Out offers an exploration that is more accurate than anything I have seen in an American film.

Time Out is deep and delicious, growing more and more intriguing with each passing scene.

Time Out plays out slowly, but Vincent's disconnectedness creates odd suspense and black humor.

It's unnerving to see Recoing's bizzarre reaction to his unemployment. Good film, but very glum.

The film is darkly funny in its observation of just how much more grueling and time-consuming the illusion of work is than actual work.

Blunt Review

Here's a sleepy little treasure folks! Veteran French stage actor, Aurélien Recoing, looms in the film. He is at once foreboding and inviting.

Conveys the soul-shattering debilitations of unemployment and the spunk needed to survive while adrift in the universe.

Recoing's fantastic performance doesn't exactly reveal what makes Vincent tick, but perhaps any definitive explanation for it would have felt like a cheat.

A hidden-agenda drama that shouts classic French nuance.

Film Threat

From a deceptively simple premise, this deeply moving French drama develops a startling story that works both as a detailed personal portrait and as a rather frightening examination of modern times.
