Credit Gondry, like Tocqueville before him, with at least re-examining tired clichés and scraping the rust off stereotypes.

Gondry is like a DJ scratching a record. He puts his own touches to the sound of the Bronx while staying true to its beat.

All of the kids are good in their roles, mostly as characters one assumes resemble themselves. And as any actor will tell you, playing yourself is one of the toughest gigs around.

Gondry's film is like a huge community, alive and -- despite a layer of protective swagger -- full of sympathy and love.

Shared Darkness

An artful, scrambled, energetic blend of youthful connection and hormonally charged carousing [that] works more as a caffeinated conveyance of feeling than an actual plotted story.

French director Michel Gondry takes a select group of Bronx teenagers, puts them on a bus, and lets them loose. For some of us, it's a scary ride.

By the end of the line, we've been granted a privileged peek at today's youth that's intimidating and nostalgia-inducing in equal measure.

Realistic look at teen culture has drinking, sex, language.

Exuberantly finds the universality of adolescence. . . [in] a running theme of. . .peers vs. individual--how 1 plus 1 equals 3, when in groups, they become like someone else.

A vivid snapshot of an interracial group of teenagers as they take a bus ride home on the last day of school.

Michel Gondry gets back to his low-budget roots and rediscovers his formidable formal playfulness in the process.

Movie Dearest

A return to successful form for (director Michel) Gondry after 2011's wretched "The Green Hornet"...captures the modern teen spirit, lingo and reliance on technology exceptionally well.

"The We and the I" neither scolds nor sentimentalizes its young characters. Instead the film invites viewers, of whatever age, to immerse themselves in the chaos, glee and heartache of a long ride home on the last day of school.

There's a lot to love about the film, but it can get buried under the attempts to tell everyone's story at once.

Often raucously funny and occasionally touching, with real insight into the behavior patterns of adolescents.

A delirious representation of incipient personalities in bloom, its form as amorphous and reckless as the vibrant youths it portrays.
