Mektoub, My Love: Canto Uno

Critics Consensus

Abdellatif Kechiche remains an astute chronicler of blossoming sexuality, but Mektoub is too languidly paced and shallow in character to justify this summer of love's indulgent runtime.

  • It's leery and defiant. But also creepy and dull.

  • A film in which every dull scene stretches on for five times longer than it needs to. Painful.

  • By the close I didn't want to see any more of this film. But by the following day I was still seeing it in my head.

    February 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A 90s summer-romance pastoral of epic length and sexiness, marinaded in sunshine.

    February 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A genuine lust for life colours Kechiche's filmmaking; in this case, his joie de vivre could stand to be a tiny bit more selective.

  • Though sprawling in length, the film is quite thin as far as plot goes...
