Critic Reviews for Cezanne and I (Cézanne et Moi)

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (14)

The lifelong friendship between painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Emile Zola gets a sensitive but occasionally soapy treatment from French writer-director Danièle Thompson (Jet Lag).

April 27, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a touching evocation of friendship, brotherly competition and artistic courage at the cusp of a new century.

April 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The film is sumptuous and sensuous to behold but a bit chilly on the heart and hazy on the mind, thanks no doubt to the prickly protagonists and the breadth of coverage.

April 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The artist's life as presented here is interesting, and you have to admire someone who can work with the same intensity, over the course of decades, in the face of indifference and rejection.

April 13, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Essentially, it's just under two hours of exquisitely art-directed conversation, little of which is especially compelling.

April 12, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A somewhat bland portrait of rebel creative spirits who both ran against the grain of their day.
