Lola Reviews

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
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.

If Lola is not a masterwork, its general polish and intent augur a bright future for the 31-year-old Mr. Demy.

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.

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.

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.

Demy gently mocks romantic movie effects, which he employs more romantically than ever.
