With a first-rate cast and a great soundtrack, this is a warm and funny movie that already begins with an impressive long take, and although it has a maudlin conclusion that almost ruins it, it is centered on a group of characters who are flawed and entirely human - like they should be.

Great cast. Strange and unbelievable story.

Guillaume Canet's ode to The Big Chill has some funny, touching moments, but it's 154 minutes long..... Why? No idea. It's just completely unnecessary to make a film this long. My other problem with Little White Lies is we're supposed to care about a group of friends who decide to go on vacation when one of their friends (Jean Dujardin) is stuck in a hospital bed after being nearly killed in a motorcycle accident. Some friends they are....

Not a bad movie, but with a cast like this one would expect a great deal more than what is delivered.

Good, but so long. Could have shaved off at least forty minutes.

Splendide (you have to be at least a little French to relate to the ambiance and message)

This movie is a real work of art. You enter the life of friends who spend the summer together as you feel what they are feeling and surpass their problems like their doing to receive in the end hapinness and sadness

2.5 hours of histrionic people sitting around drinking wine and sleeping with each other, then a sad part at the end? Yep, it's a French film alright!

Friendship has never been so compelling a subject as it is in this movie.

Great drama with the perfect amount of humor. Canet's shows us that he can write and direct comedies in the future based on the few but hilarious scenes of Little White Lies. The cast also gathers one of the best french actors that we have nowadays and they manage to build an intense and powerful connection between their characters on screen. The only problem with the movie is the length. It takes too long to finally begin and too long to finish. But it's a nice story to follow so you won't be that bored.

"Little White Lies" starts with Ludo(Jean Dujardin) ending his night of wild partying by being hit by a truck while riding his scooter. That gives their friends pause in making their vacation plans. In the meantime, Marie(Marion Cotillard) kicks Franck(Maxim Nucci) out of her apartment after they have sex because she can only watch movies alone, just as Eric(Gilles Lellouche) shows up from his own disastrous date. And then Vincent(Benoit Magimel) tells Max(Francois Cluzet) how he really feels about him.

"Little White Lies" has a couple of early moments of sheer gay panic from which it never quite recovers over its epic length. In fact, one such turns into a running joke over the length of the film. Otherwise, this resembles nothing more than a banal three episodes of a dramedy television series. And as much fun as it is to watch the likes of Francois Cluzet and Marion Cotillard act, this hardly makes up for any of that.

That's probably because you are not in good company. Basically, we're talking about a group of self-involved characters with boundary issues. But they are not responsible for taking care of Ludo for which they are called out on.(I mean, does he have any family, a friendly drug dealer, a prostitute with a heart of gold or any other cliche to take care of him?) In any case, I don't know what these chracters have in common as they come from different classes and ages. For example, who brings their massage therapist on vacation unless it is for sex?

Making a point about shallow people, it's a shallow film

The best way to describe this engaging movie is that is is close to the French equivalent of The Big Chill!

not enough Jean Dujardin

Canet and his star-studded cast create a lively atmosphere that more than makes up for the film's narrative flaws

Friends love, fights, sadness..and loyalty are always tie together.

Les Petits Mouchoirs is an incredible film, with excellent direction from Guillaume Canet as well as an amazing performance from the beautiful Marion Cotillard, all add up to become a sensational film with an impeccable story and touching characters, I recommend it. 4/5.
