It's a modest but handsome production, lovingly photographed by Giles Nuttgens and mostly filmed in Hungary, with period trappings that seem authentic in every respect.

There's some dramatic heft that's missing that might've pushed this over the edge from good to great, but as a showcase for an actress whose gifts are still unfolding before us, it's an easy recommendation.

Impeccably written and acted, the movie transcends the message of female emancipation to deliver actual entertainment.

Far from the solemnity of the academic cinema, the story flows with lightness, humor, charm and, at the same time, with fury when it comes to exposing the effects of patriarchy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Keira Knightly is on top form as Colette, in this funny and inspiring costume drama.

Washmoreland has the right kind of deviant sensibility to take the film beyond stuffy historical piece. He gives Knightley range to move outside the period straightjacket.
December 6, 2018
The film is an entertaining, unstuffy period piece. It won't leave you stunned.

This film could not be less current. Not only because it has a woman as a protagonist, but because that character opens up, grows and manages to live achieving what she seeks. [Full review in Spanish]

Keira Knightley does what she can with the clumsy and basic guidelines of the character, a bronze semblance that also, for the lack of honesty, ends up shipwrecked despite all the efforts that the cast does. [Full Review in Spanish]

... a delightful and finely-crafted piece of cinema.

Knightley excels -- Colette's growing confidence is entirely believable, precisely because she's never a complete walkover, even at the beginning. Her blossoming as an independent woman and as a writer feels like a natural progression.

COLETTE is the rare film that overcomes a personal malaise [for historical biopics]. Skillful cinematography, excellent performances, and a willingness not to sanitize things are all to the good in this effort.

Colette becomes an intelligent discourse on how - in a patriarchal society - the genius of talented women is not easily recognized, but, on the contrary, tends to be invisible. [Full review in Spanish]

November 19, 2018
The director builds a fun universe, unprejudiced and so far from this world that it even seems lie. [Full Review in Spanish]

November 15, 2018
The figure of Sidonie Gabrielle-Colette provides enough dramatic components so that the director can execute his operation without too much of a struggle. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 15, 2018
Kightley, West and Gough all give fine performances in this film, along with the supporting actors. Writer-director Wash Westmorland ('Still Alice') smoothly navigates this sprawling story, while keeping the focus where it belongs, on Colette.

Even Keira Knightley, always so prim, seems infected with this woman who did not deprive herself of any of life's pleasures. [Full review in Spanish]

Collette is a woman who refused to be defined by her husband or what the world expected of women
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 2, 2018
What is missing in Colette is the depth of emotion that her writing elicits: It's full of sensory pleasures, promise and longing.
