Critic Reviews for The Shock of the Future (Le choc du futur)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (3)

  • For those who couldn't tell you the difference between a Mellotron and a Mu-Tron, this amiably aimless film may prove patience-testing with its languid narrative rhythms, thinly sketched characters and on-the-nose electro evangelism.

    Top Critic
  • A beguiling central performance and a near-numinous belief in the transformative power of music are the highlights of this modest yet perfectly formed French-language drama about the origins of synthesizer pop.

  • Ana's artistic journey is pure boilerplate; the same misunderstood game-changer schtick Hollywood routinely serves up from the likes of Step Up upwards.

  • For me, a self-identified music nerd, things generally worked. Le Choc du Futur's aesthetic may ultimately be the point more so than its story.

    October 19, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • It is a rousing story, underplayed to near-perfection, made grand by the sense of artistic discovery it conveys.

    July 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The title itself translates to "The Shock of the Future" in English, and this is a breezy and enjoyable film for music nerds and gearheads.
