March 2, 2018
... a bittersweet musical without the music, lovingly shot in Demy's hometown of Nantes in black and white CinemaScope by nouvelle vague master Raoul Coutard...
March 1, 2017
The Ophüls question ("Quelle heure est-il?") is always in the air, along with the tilting, craning and tracking that link and sever feelings.
March 1, 2017
It is offbeat, with shafts of tender feeling and truth. But trying to touch on too many subjects makes the film uneven.
March 1, 2017
Intuited rather than explained & felt rather than understood.

March 1, 2017
Very beautifully shot, in widescreen and luminous black-and-white, it is also formally astonishing, with all the minor characters serving as variations on the central couple.
March 1, 2017
If Lola is not a masterwork, its general polish and intent augur a bright future for the 31-year-old Mr. Demy.

March 1, 2017
Before he gained renown with The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Demy made his feature debut with a prequel of sorts, which was his elegant homage to the films of Max Ophuls.
March 1, 2017
Has a springy, musical quality to it.

March 1, 2017
An ode to yearning and enchantment -- a valentine to France, to beautiful women, to the foolish but delicious notions of romance that we receive from Hollywood.
March 1, 2017
There is something gentle and elusive going on here, and you should catch the movie at long last even if you've seen it before.
March 1, 2017
Demy is best known stateside for his wondrous musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but some consider this, his debut feature, to be his best work.
March 1, 2017
Free-flowing debut feature from French director Jacques Demy who, with his wife, director Agnes Varda, flourished during the New Wave.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 1, 2017
Jacques Demy's first and in some ways best feature, shot in exquisite black-and-white 'Scope by Raoul Coutard, is among the most neglected major works of the French New Wave.
June 1, 2015
Demy gently mocks romantic movie effects, which he employs more romantically than ever.
February 26, 2013
Pleasantly conceived romantic roundelay.

July 31, 2012
Decades after it was made, Lola, Demy's auspicious directing debut starring Anouk Aimee, is just as impressive, lyrical and touching as it was in 1961.
