  • We appreciate the unique personalities of these two kids, and we're glad they found each other.

    July 29, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The laughs are sometimes bigger than expected, and so are the emotions stirred by the bittersweet finale.

    July 28, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Gondry conveys a feeling of happy fantasy: two against the world, managing despite everything.

    July 21, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Charming, melancholy, and, in the end, not terribly memorable, "Microbe & Gasoline" shows the gifted filmmaking eccentric Michel Gondry pulling back to more personal territory.

  • Packed with wit and warmth, "Microbe and Gasoline" is a minor key showstopper. It's proof you don't always need a huge fireworks display, sometimes a bottle rocket and a few sparklers will do the trick.

    July 15, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • A cross between François Truffaut's sometimes-harrowing dramas about childhood and a Steven Spielberg fantasy, Gondry's film abounds with sentiment - without falling prey to sentimentality.
