Copacabana proves that Isabelle Huppert can do anything, including starring in a trivial mother-daughter dramedy that's beneath her considerable talents.

With a Gallic twist, Copacabana is a quirky feel-good comedy for the kook in us all.

An emotionally intelligent film this, with a keen sense of rhythm and balance from writer director Marc Fitoussi, who draws his characters with affection but never sentimentality.

The lack of cynicism from the filmmakers and the lead character means that Copacabana ends up being an extremely charming and sweet film, pleasingly revealing yet another side to the chameleon-like Isabelle Huppert.
