The We and the I Reviews

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

An occasionally interesting glimpse into the lives of a diverse group of urban teens and their struggles, but also a film that's overly long and often annoying.

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 has talent, and I think he enjoyed being with these youngsters, but the film suffers in trying to impose something vaguely like a story on a framework that boils down to teen high jinks during a bus ride.

"The We and the I" is a collection of very thin stories, many of which feel incomplete.

Organic interactions are interrupted by Gondry's words, or abandoned in favor of fantasy sequences. The film's verisimilitude too often takes a backseat to conventional storytelling and Gondry's whimsical aesthetic.

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

Fake documentaries annoy me - why not put in the effort and deliver the real thing? - and this one is not only aimless and stiff, it also rings false.

"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.

Given the choice between handcrafted whimsy and heavy-handedness, we'll take the former, thanks.

At its finest and most affecting, The We and the I is a window onto youth's forever moments ...

Rambling and unpolished, the film has a scrappy charm that springs organically from the characters and their stories rather than being artificially coaxed.
