Un film qui a tous les lments la bonne place et dans lequel Martin propose nouveau un mlange lgant d'une formule qu'il connat par c%u0153ur.

...More like a European film than Hollywood, but it's not a matter of transmitting on a frequency most Americans don't receive. It's a matter of information that's not there.

threatens to turn into the latest update of 'Pretty Woman' (but) an inescapable undercurrent of sadness flows through the movie and through its characters, which gives 'Shopgirl' a wistful, often downright bluesy tone.

Shopgirl is Steve Martin at his most philosophical. This romantic comedy is not like the usual Hollywood fare, but is an exploration of loneliness, isolation, expectations and reality. A bittersweet lovestory for thinkers.

The new movie, "Shopgirl," isn't nearly as slight as it sounds. It isn't a comedy, it isn't a "chick-flick," and it certainly isn't about shopping.

This is Claire Danes best performance since 'Romeo + Juliet.'

Watching [Dane], you think other actresses look half-alive at best. You even forget for a while that other actresses exist.

Shopgirl stands out as an elegant work, one that provides a welcome look at love, romance, and heartbreak without the encumbrances of the usual Hollywood folderol.
November 18, 2005
A slim, charming, romantic story, full of intentionally mild humor about strong themes -- passion, commitment, loneliness.

Where Elizabethtown pretends to have the meaning of life, Shopgirl hones in on a few telling details, then allows audiences to fill in the rest.
November 18, 2005
A minimalist almost-love story told with epic flourishes.

Martin tries to sell us the idea that he's at least the West Coast Woody Allen. Audiences would do well to keep their receipts.

The sheer charm of Ms. Danes' performance, combined with the convincingly resigned sadness of Mr. Martin and the intense sincerity of the singularly uncharismatic Mr. Schwartzman, make this a deeply bittersweet film experience.
November 14, 2005
Walks a fine line between pensive and frail as it attempts to comprehend expectations from love.
November 12, 2005
This is truly one of the best films of the year, do yourself a favour and see it today

Like many Hollywood movies, it confuses sex for love. Even so, after a terrible first half hour, the movie picks up and the remaining hour actually becomes entertaining.
November 10, 2005
I can't think of a reason to recommend Shopgirl to anyone.
November 10, 2005
An elegant distraction, Shopgirl does everything in its power to eliminate human connection.
November 9, 2005
It's probably not a good date movie, but it is a good relationship film. Read it, go see it.
November 9, 2005
The movie's flaws are made worthwhile by the things it gets right -- not to mention the fact that Shopgirl is one of the most beautifully shot films in recent memory.
