Critic Reviews for Felix & Meira
Delicate, warm and worried, "Felix and Meira" is a coming-of-age film about two grown people stunted by social circumstance.
This is the sort of movie whose warmth toward its characters is contagious.
When is an image held for too long? At what point does a shot's duration outlast its emotional information? As ardent and earnest as it is, "Felix and Meira" is a test case.
There's a subtext to this love story that seems to say we're all islands, in one way or another.
Director Maxime Giroux gets good performances from leads Martin Dubreuil and Hadas Yaron...But the romantic mood is asked to cover for too much left unsaid, unasked, and undone.
Audience Reviews for Felix & Meira
It must be a sign that a film is not working when you wish to know more about a two-dimensional supporting character (Meira's husband) than about the two main ones, who are as dull as the artificial dialogue and the tedious dynamics between them - and the film only goes into high gear with thirty minutes left to end.
As Felix(Martin Dubreuil) and Meira(Hadas Yaron) meet and bond over a shared interest in music and art, this movie asks in sensitive and understated fashion in a variety of languages and settings whether these two misfits can fit in anywhere...and whether that is at all important. So, "Felix and Meira" is not meant as a criticism per se of Orthodox Judaism that Meira belongs to. But it does point out that it and Meira's husband Shulem(Luzer Twersky) are ill-equipped to deal with the postpartum depression she is probably suffering from. Meanwhile, Felix has severely mixed feelings from visiting his domineering father on his deathbed.
