Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo

Critics Consensus

Joyless and distastefully photographed, Abdellatif Kechiche's second chapter in his romantic epic is too enamored with derrière to offer audiences a reason to care.

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (18)

  • Beyond being tiresome, Intermezzo is just plain ugly, with seemingly little care given to the image - odd, perhaps, given that the film is so clearly and confrontationally about its own director's gaze.

  • In practice, however, the film is a slog of epic proportions, its trancelike repetitiveness threatening to destroy this critic's fragile grasp on time itself, ushering me into a new plane of star-child boredom.

  • Kechiche devotes about 60% of its runtime to extreme close-ups of jiggling female derrieres. And while that horrifyingly unexaggerated statistic may sound like a bit of a red flag to begin with, it only gets worse...

  • Almost the very first shot is of a woman's naked bottom, massively filling the screen, like an inflatable by Terry Gilliam.

  • [A] terminally indulgent macho doodle posing as a movie.

    May 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A dismaying creative dead end from an abundantly gifted filmmaker, the new film escalates its predecessor's cheeky protest to a form of acute auteur trolling.
