Critic Reviews for The Salt of Tears (Le sel des larmes)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • While "The Salt of Tears" threatens to devolve into a sympathetic male gaze with each new turn, Garrel actually manages to burrow within those boundaries and deconstruct their flaws from the inside out.

  • There's an element of light comedy - rather than the more familiar irony - that feels fresh and invigorating, even if Garrel doesn't quite stick the landing.

  • A would-be modern Don Juan story, marked thoughout by sloppy quick-sketch characterization, stilted dialogue and risibly dated gender politics, it's an exercise only for the most forgiving of Garrel acolytes...

  • It is a watchable, insouciant love story with some great incidental performances, although there is a sense of the shark being jumped 30 minutes from the end.

  • In the end, The Salt of Tears feels like Garrel is parodying his own work, with unintentionally laughable results.

  • Thanks to this highly polished continuity, we can collate a scene (the encounter) with the next one (the appointment) and stop at the changes between the two, contained in the looks of the characters. [Full review in Spanish]
