Movie Info

The revolutionary upheaval of 1968 rocked Europe, and led to many changes. For a while, it was possible to think that the radical idealism of the youth protests would finally take form in the world. In this film, eight people in their late tweties and early thirties try to keep the radical flames burning. From a man continuing his mystic quest to a Robin Hood-like grocery worker, each of them seeks an alternative to the mainstream vision. One of them is married, and his child Jonah, born that year, will be 25 in the year 2000. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

It's a heady experience following their agile ruminations on time, language and perception, deftly superimposed on a film that pleases visually and formally.

The performances are so thoroughly integrated with the material that I'm not sure where performances begin and the work of the director and the writers leaves off. The entire cast is splendid.

Funny, moving, and instructive, Jonah is that rare thing: a political film that speaks to the heart as well as the mind.

Arriving at one's failure and accepting it. Not embracing it, not ennobling it, but recognizing battles transform over lived time. The world is good. Food and ----ing are good. The rich are terrible... prophetic and post-apocalyptic, even in June 2018.

Their alienation is channeled into nervous verbal energy, winning, bright, free from cant.

An exhilarating film with characters that are filled with life and who refuse to become trapped in endless dreams that can never come true.
