[Amalric gives] us the flavor of life on tour - the sudden connections and unexpected intimacies that occur when very different people are thrown together.
If On Tour is finally too transient, too light on luggage, to be fully successful, it has a keen sense of the France we rarely get to see on screen: a limbo-land of trading estates, petrol stations and chain hotels.
There's a strong sense of the tour as work - bland hotels, travel co-ordination, Muzak - as well as the situation's propensity to let cooped-up emotions, from anger to lust, marinate.
While On Tour settles a little too easily in conclusion for the troupe-as-one-big-family cliché... the film's engaging confidence and inclusive good nature prove [Mathieu Amalric]'s worth watching both as an actor and a director.
With its semi-improvised feel, On Tour often feels like a series of episodes, strung like beads on a string. Each one is a perfectly small perfect bijoux, but collected together, they begin to create genuine and tattered glamour.
On Tour offers a series of passing pleasures but fails to cohere into a meaningful whole.
A likably rambling survey of ephemeral community, a portrait of the artist as washed-up family man and pimp, and a quasi-documentary about brassy stage persona.
Amalric se estabelece cada vez mais como um dos nomes mais importantes do cinema francês - e Turnê é apenas a coroação de uma trajetória merecedora de infinitos aplausos.
It's a distinctly glamour-free film, and all the better for it, with Amalric mixing lively performance scenes with the drab off-stage realities to reinforce how tough it is to make a living on the fringes of the entertainment world.
The routines of the American dancers - all real performers - provide most of the highlights.
full review at Movies for the Masses
Amalric doesn't tease out emotional ties between the narrative threads, which scuppers the faux-redemptive finale and results in a film of merely incidental pleasures.
Amalric proves that he is not only a great actor but also an extremely talented director, displaying a lot of confidence and maturity with this hugely involving film that doesn't need any effort to make us empathize with its characters and want to know more about them.
Mathieu Amalric's directorial debut is a surprisingly soulful account of a burlesque troupe's journey across France. Amalric is excellent as the tour's producer, who finds his tattered home life following him on a wild and difficult trip. A bit aimless at times, but there is a surprising amount of pathos to be found as Amalric examines a life ill spent.
