February 10, 2019
This movie is like a family holiday that you can sum up to acquaintances in two or three sentences but spend hours agonizing about to your closest friends.

The arrival of Agathe Villanova is at the center of the drama in Let it Rain, and the story benefits from giving her more to do in front of the lens.

Let It Rain may be harmlessly pleasant, but it's harmlessly pleasant to the point of insipidness.

The genial comedy reaches for understated satirical moments.

For all the affairs, the jealousy, the self-involvement and the obliviousness of some characters, these are lives in lower case...

Agns Jaoui's light farce is so crafty that one might not notice that the breezy story is really about a successful woman getting cut down to size for being too controlling.

Not a laugh riot, but neither is it played for melodrama.

It's graceful in presenting its ideas, and what emerges is not a polemic but a kind of snapshot of modern-day concerns.

May be a light lunch compared to the full meal of some other recent French offerings but it still tastes damn good.

At times Let It Rain recalls one of those Katharine Hepburn comedies where the New Woman gets cut down to size so as not to intimidate the Old-School Men. Yet the film so likably deflates the pompous and pumps up the humble that it's hard not to like.

The character conflicts are so decorously handled that after a while the whole enterprise begins to seem more like a good waiter than a good story.

Refreshingly (for American audiences, anyway), everyone in "Let It Rain" has genuinely good intentions.

A movie in which everyone was this disappointed, and nobody changed, would be a very sad film, and that's not Jaoui's intent. She's not a cynic but a humanist and, by the end of the film, most of these people have taken some steps toward change.

It's all a little insular and very conversational, but the setting is cozy and the performances all pleasantly low-key.

May not be funny in a ha-ha sense, but it gave me an amused open-mouthed appreciation of life's absurdities, including unanticipated nuisances like bad weather.
