  • A romance in which you don't care much for the main guy. You can see the effect he has on the woman, and while you don't laugh at her big emotions for an amusement park ride, you never feel what she does.

  • Neither of them can prevent "Jumbo" from feeling smaller than it should. By the same token, none of Wittock's rookie mistakes can stop her debut from being a ride worth taking.

  • Ultimately more of a well-intended melodramatic experiment than a fully realized love story about one of the more curious corners of humanity's sexual-psychological tapestry.

  • Despite Wittock's assured first act, the film never quite convinces that machines, as Jeanne swoons, "are just like us - more complicated than you might think."

  • Jumbo, as its name might imply, has a big heart, open to all. May we accept its passion and make it our own.

    March 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A special coming-of-age drama that takes full advantage of its premise in an unexpected manner, while boasting another incredible leading performance by Noémie Merlant.
