Movie Info

Talented 20-year-old Lolita (Marilou Berry) dreams of a singing career. But her self-esteem is low due to her weight problem and her narcissistic father, Étienne (Jean-Pierre Bacri), a literary star with scant interest in his daughter's life. Lolita finds little comfort in the attentions of her vocal coach, suspecting the woman is using her to meet her influential father. Étienne's second wife proves to be Lolita's only trustworthy ally in her private battle to find a sense of worth.

Critic Reviews for Look at Me

All Critics (99) | Top Critics (33) | Fresh (86) | Rotten (13)

  • The pleasure of the film, as in many French films from Renoir to Rohmer, is in the exactitude of observation, the accuracy of the portrait and the elegance of the writing.

    May 26, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Both an implicit protest against the blindness of power and an equally fervent protest against the acquiescence of men and women who are too weak or too compromised to stand up for themselves -- that is, most people.

    May 21, 2005
  • At best, a most watchable character study of lives that are more interesting than compelling.

    May 13, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • [Has] a light, sometimes hilarious touch.

    May 6, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Jaoui sets her wryly observant sights on family, artistic ambition and the tyranny of physical appearance, and the result is a bright, briskly moving film whose modest scale belies the universality of its themes.

  • An overrated mound of misery.

    This is about a girl's relationship with her father, who is a famous and wealthy writer. Lolita can't get her father's attention, since he is too self-absorbed to notice her. Most people in her life seem to use Lolita to find a way to meet her father. Her self-esteem is eroded further by being a bit overweight and her beautiful young stepmother. This movie shows human relationships as they are.

    Not the best to come out of the French cinema lately but not a bad Sunday afternoon flick to think about self image.

    considering this script was a winner at the 2004 Cannes film festival, my expectations for this 'comedy' were much higher than this film's execution. finely acted, wonderfully self-absorbed characters, good script, but something was lost in the translation.

    Sad movie about a girl and her father. Well done.
