The performances, songs, and choreography are all charmingly low-key, giving the film a handmade quality that suggests pride in a job well done.
Yes, the whole thing is fantastical, a daydream of people triumphing over profits via brilliant PR, and love making a case for itself in the face of everything. But it's just believable enough to make at least some of us play along.
While Footnotes works up a certain provisional charm at moments, it's too determinedly low key as a whole to make a really memorable impression.
This feather-light French confection, written and directed by Paul Calori and Kostia Testut, addresses its dignity-of-work thesis with sweetness and heart.
It's a sometimes impressive effort, but the homage often suggests a photocopy of a photocopy; the skeleton of the inspirational source remains, but the details are obscured.
Footnotes isn't perfect, but at least nobody lectured me about jazz.
Modest tonic, a bright and agreeable musical drawing on the boldly colored palette of countryman Jacques Demy and American filmmakers like Stanley Donen.
There are so many other, better ways you could spend Footnotes' seventy-eight minutes.
Captivating, enchanting, and whimsical, Footnotes is one of the year's most delightful surprises.
Homage of movie musicals of years past has a certain charm but fails to live up to its illustrious predecessors.
France's often delightful, lefty response to La La Land, has workers uniting in song and dance to protest a downsizing of their luxury shoe factory. Sort of a low rent Pajama Game with a book by Karl Marx and lyrics by Jimmy Choo.
The ending cheapens the main character and weakens the film's firm commitment to the importance of workplace organizing.
