[Claire Denis's] skill in framing her protagonist's various trysts, moods, and dialogues, sometimes even setting them to music, is matchless.
January 26, 2019
Binoche is amazingly good in this role and it's no small thing for a contemporary film to celebrate the sexuality of a middle-aged woman. But Juliette's self-absorption becomes somewhat tiresome after a while.
January 23, 2019
It's a story about people who spend more time talking about their lives than inhabiting them.
December 7, 2018
For a movie that may ultimately be about the need for compromise, Let the Sunshine In doesn't make any-and that's why it's Denis at her best.
July 13, 2018
They're saying this is the closest director Claire Denis has come to a romcom. If this is a romantic comedy, WTF has Katherine Heigl been getting away with all these years?
June 29, 2018
Juliette Binoche giving one of the greatest performances of her Oscar-winning career.

It's a pleasure to go along with that ride - to watch Binoche's face lighting up like a flower suddenly blooming, to enjoy Denis' golden light and moody, nostalgic score.
June 1, 2018
If it weren't for Binoche's warmth, the film might easily sink beneath the stereotype of French culture as overly talky and sex obsessed.

[An] elegantly observed romance about a divorced woman searching for "one real love" in a city of lupine losers.
May 31, 2018
It's intoxicating, and if that sounds like a fun way to spend 90 minutes, I think you will be rewarded by a deeper sense of the complexities of love.
May 25, 2018
There's a Hollywood version of this tale, but that's not the one co-writer and director Claire Denis presents. "Let the Sunshine In" works because it's real, relatable and true to the heart.
May 21, 2018
Denis's foray into the often-goofy world of the rom-com is at once a cold bath of realism and a bewitching portrait of the power of love.
May 17, 2018
Denis instinctively knows what will draw us in - for most of the movie it's Binoche's face, so inviting, eager to soak up everything around her.
May 10, 2018
Tilt it one way, and "Let the Sunshine In" becomes a dramatic portrait of a woman's sensual restlessness. Tilted the other way, it's a bittersweet romantic comedy.
May 10, 2018
A multifaceted, bittersweet delight.
May 10, 2018
A dry, lightly sad, and very French comedy of romantic neurosis, brought to us by two great artists, director Claire Denis and star Juliette Binoche.
May 9, 2018
It's Binoche, here delivering one of her finest and most subtly calibrated performances, who imbues Isabelle with the heart and earthy eroticism that makes her far more appealing, even heroic, than the pathetic figure she might have been.
May 4, 2018
The movie is all a bit more airy than it needs to be, but Isabelle's startlements are like a double take that never lets up.
May 4, 2018
The movie is too smart to serve us a traditional happy ending-and too pure a romance to deny us the pleasure of one.
May 2, 2018
Structurally, the film can play like a weird, intellectualised inversion of a Nora Ephron comedy.
