Critic Reviews for Stolen Holidays (Les Petites Vacances)
Even though the precisely layered, Jenga-tower narrative becomes tiresome towards the end, punches that could have easily been pulled in the final scenes make firm and full contact.
Les Petites Vacances is quietly effective and deeply sympathetic.
A superb performance from veteran New Wave actress Bernadette Lafont anchors this absorbing road movie from debut French writer/director Olivier Peyon.
Les Petites vacances is sunny on the surface, but subtly disconcerting.
This is a stylish performance from Lafont, and though I wondered if she wasn't withholding too much interior turmoil from the camera, it is very assured work from Peyon.
It's a characteristically French film - in the UK, the same story would be big on whimsy and lovable eccentrics, but in the Gallic take there's a chilly bleakness that cuts like the wind from the mountains that provide the backdrop to the story.
