Non-Fiction

Critics Consensus

Well-acted and sharply written, Non-Fiction finds writer-director Olivier Assayas working in a comedic vein that channels classic forebears while remaining utterly fresh.

  • It sounds farcical, but it's also a serious work from the writer-director Olivier Assayas and his key performers that interrogates the nature of literary value today through the words of uncommonly rounded and deeply appealing characters.

  • A meal made up of nothing but appetisers.

  • Olivier Assayas is treading water with this amiable but self-indulgent and finally negligible movie about intrigue and adulterous goings-on in the publishing world of Paris.

  • It's maybe not going to sit near the top of the director's canon, but it's a nice addition to it.

    October 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Writer-director Olivier Assayas goes looking for one real thing amid a group of French sophisticates who deal in artifice, both as a way of making a living and (with one possible exception) as a way of life.

    June 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • In barely disguised code, "Non-Fiction" operates as a wry analysis of Assayas' chosen profession as filmmaker.
