A film that may not last too long in our memory, but that stimulates retinas, brains and hearts like very few, coming to fall in love without offering anything more than a natural charm as great as that of its leading figure. [Full Review in Spanish]

No one does seething quite like Keira Knightley, and she deploys some of her best emotional work in this film.

Knightley in particular makes a welcome return to the spotlight, reminding audiences of why she was once British period dramas' go-to-gal in the likes of Pride and Prejudice, Anna Karenina and The Duchess.

It is an eye-opening statement in the #MeToo climate, with credit going primarily to Knightley's powerful performance.

Respectful and tasteful? Yes, but it would have been better if this biopic's storytelling style matched the boldness of the woman it seeks to portray.

Don't expect a reinvention within the genre, but it's a strikingly fascinating story and told pretty darn well.

[Keira Knightley] gets far more to do and is infinitely better at it than usual in the brisk new period piece Colette

This very earnest and lovely-to-look-at production is reasonably enjoyable, without being "all" that good.

Keira Knightley is charismatic and natural in the lead role, and there's a welcome ease in the way the movie charts her discovery of sexual freedom.

Good, dirty, fun.

The film is diverting and engaging - but it isn't a masterpiece, taking the time it does to settle into the story after an abrupt start.

Most of all, the script works as an engaging study of a strong and talented woman finding her own path.

My suggestion is: save your ticket money and read Colette's biography instead.

Colette is undoubtedly an enjoyable watch, anchored as it is by excellent performances from the two leads, and highly polished direction and cinematograph.

In the wrong films Knightley is a pretty girl with a small bag of tricks. In the right ones she's formidable. Crucially here, she also cuts it as a wordsmith.

It is delicate, powerful, meaningful and a feast to lay your eyes upon.

Knightley's Colette is fine too. But nothing more. The role required a maelstrom of tortured angst and rousing defiance to support the weight of the film. It never arrived.

It is funnier than you might expect and a timely look at prejudice and the creative process.

Dominic West is a riot as Colette's louche husband, but Knightley owns the film with a brilliant performance as the free-spirited author who pushes back against patriarchal oppression.
