Critic Reviews for Jonah Who Will be 25 in the Year 2000
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.
An exhilarating film with characters that are filled with life and who refuse to become trapped in endless dreams that can never come true.

Audience Reviews for Jonah Who Will be 25 in the Year 2000
Pretty nice film about a group of middle aged post 68 radicals. The monchrome footage portraying the characters' interiority is quite a funny narrative device. Tanner incorporates the Marxist ideas into the emsemble of characters well enough. It makes it quite a talky film which is at times a bit too didactic. I don't know if it's because the film is that dated, but some of the characters have this quirkiness that rubs me the wrong way.
