  • Delicate, warm and worried, "Felix and Meira" is a coming-of-age film about two grown people stunted by social circumstance.

    July 17, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie approaches this mutual attraction tentatively, much as the two characters do. And that's the problem with this well-meaning but ultimately hollow film romance: You don't see it; you don't get it.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a subtext to this love story that seems to say we're all islands, in one way or another.

    May 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • The story takes a path that is not surprising. What makes the film engaging is the route it takes to get there.

  • Plot complications lessen the movie, but intermittently it is genuinely moving.

Audience Reviews for Felix and Meira

  • Jul 22, 2015
    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.
