Lolo Reviews

June 2, 2016
Lolo happily takes the rom-com road less travelled, the one marked "Danger."

I appreciated the effort Delpy, directing her sixth feature, puts forth in trying to spice up the genre. But that doesn't mean I enjoyed it.

Lolo is fun and fresh to look at: Violette's habitat is fashion-world, Centre-Pompidou new Paris, blessedly free of the Louvre-and-Seine shorthand that sells French movies to American audiences.

Delpy's portrayal - high-strung, neurotic, prone to mild hysterics - is so reminiscent of some of the actress's previous roles that it's hard to forget that you're watching Delpy, not Violette.

For all of its non-commonplace perspectives, the movie finally feels a bit thin.
March 10, 2016
As a character, Lolo is a conceit of indulgent parenting and never fully blooms.

Smarter than most Apatow clones, this is an infinitely quotable riot, especially when Delpy and Viard share the screen.

Delpy brings an unflinching perspective to the realities of balancing new love and motherhood, even while playing it for laughs.

Eventually, you may start to wonder, is this a comedy or a stealth horror movie? Not to worry - even the most extreme punishments are softened by hilariously neurotic dialogue.

Delpy is so good at portraying her character's varied neuroses, which have been unwittingly forged over a lifetime, that her last-act enlightenment feels like a cop-out.
March 8, 2016
Lolo is a maternal horror film in the guise of a light romantic comedy, and therein lies much of its charm.

A high-concept comedy that's French actress-director Julie Delpy's most winningly mainstream concoction yet.

What could have been a broad yet sweetly believable comic meditation on cross-cultural middle-aged romance [is dragged] down with flatly staged, sometimes downright infantile low-brow antics.
