Thomas in Love (Thomas est amoureux) Reviews

December 21, 2001
A film in which the camera's point of view never changes can start to feel claustrophobic. But the originality of the concept and the quality of the performances help to compensate.
December 14, 2001
The last few minutes of this movie are strangely moving. What leads up to them is shot through with dark humor and scathing satire.
September 14, 2001
Thomas In Love never develops beyond an interesting exercise in style over story.
September 14, 2001
Innovative and thoughtful.

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

August 9, 2001
A good story about a fellow who really needs to leave his room.
August 9, 2001
The Dutch director Pierre Paul Renders ingeniously conjures the image of a control freak society that is sinister in its very playfulness.

August 9, 2001
At 97 minutes, [Renders and Blasband] manage to get about all they possibly can out of this unusual narrative ploy.
August 8, 2001
One of the year's small finds -- that rare art-house date movie.
August 3, 2001
Dark wit and shrewd social observation sustain this cunning, unnerving conceit by director Pierre-Paul Renders and writer Philippe Blasband.
August 3, 2001
The film is full of ingenious details and effective character sketches (Thomas has a mother who would give Woody Allen the willies) that go a long way toward covering up its conventionalities.

August 3, 2001
While talky and gimmicky, this witty Gallic film spins a sci-fi scenario near enough to reality that anyone who frequents the information superhighway can relate.
August 3, 2001
Starts gently, with amusing drollness, then gets more serious, even provocative, without sacrificing its light touch.

Dissects how human affection has been short-circuited by information-age trappings with a fusty literal-mindedness.
