It is on stage that the troupe really shines ... giving a tantalising hint at what the film could have been had Amalric proved himself as good a filmmaker as he is an actor.

On Tour offers a series of passing pleasures but fails to cohere into a meaningful whole.

The routines of the American dancers - all real performers - provide most of the highlights.

Amalric won the best director prize at Cannes with this movie. He certainly demonstrates he's equally adept in front and behind the camera...

House Next Door
May 13, 2011
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 nails Zand's well-meaning but hapless nature, even if he does look like a pimp Oompa Loompa.

When the film is not too grim to be funny, it is too funny to be grim.

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 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.

[Amalric gives] us the flavor of life on tour - the sudden connections and unexpected intimacies that occur when very different people are thrown together.

Time Out
December 9, 2010
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.

It's a hugely energetic and appealing film, with a saucy wit and melancholy caught on the fly.

December 27, 2010
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.

Amalric's second stab at feature direction marks him out as a talent to watch.

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.
