It duplicates Thomas' miserable world so well we want to escape it as urgently as Thomas does.

"Thomas in Love" can be chalked up as a noble failure.

A sex film for the Bill Gates age, and it's about as sexy as Gates, too.

Intriguing idea but static and repetitious.

Thomas in Love gives us little reason to love him back.

Village Voice
August 1, 2001
Dissects how human affection has been short-circuited by information-age trappings with a fusty literal-mindedness.
Tor Thorsen
August 2, 2001
Quirky but unsatisfying.

The story is slight and would probably be better suited to a short subject.
Paula Nechak

A movie that's as emotionally bereft as the realm it purports to scrutinize and comment upon.

Thomas In Love never develops beyond an interesting exercise in style over story.

At 97 minutes, [Renders and Blasband] manage to get about all they possibly can out of this unusual narrative ploy.

August 3, 2001
The fact that we never see [Thomas'] face or his eyes, and yet still get to know him, is a magic trick that the film performs fluidly and gracefully.
MaryAnn Johanson
Flick Filosopher
August 2, 2001
The most striking thing about this subtle, refreshingly original science-fiction flick is that we never see the hero.
Rob Blackwelder
August 3, 2001
A stimulating and unexpectedly satisfying cinematic experiment.

August 4, 2001
An intriguing work about modern loneliness, mediated relationships, cybersex, and the narcissism of cocooned individuals.
Arthur Lazere
August 5, 2001
gentle, pointed satire and a very human story of disengagement

Dark wit and shrewd social observation sustain this cunning, unnerving conceit by director Pierre-Paul Renders and writer Philippe Blasband.

One of the year's small finds -- that rare art-house date movie.
