Critic Reviews for Fanny

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Mr. Auteuil's passion project is sincere but not successful, honorable but not alive.

Top Critic

Fanny has a stagy sensibility, but Auteuil displays flashes of genuine, old-school craft.

Top Critic

"Classic" is a word all too casually bandied about, but for Daniel Auteuil's screen adaptation of this beloved French trilogy it is completely apropos.

Film Journal International

One great performance... doesn't justify Auteuil's decision to remake a series of films that are an inextricable part of their own era.

The Dissolve

The characters, the sets, and the scenes all exist to propagate the notion that pleasure derives from repetition and remediation.

Slant Magazine

Auteuil is not the greatest movie director, but he has strong dramatic instincts, as evidenced by the strong performances he elicits from his actors, and delivers himself.
