August 15, 2020
We should be appalled by Claire's behaviour, but in a much darker, more adult take on hit Stan series Younger, Nebbou is smart enough to layer in a razor-sharp commentary on ageism and society's urge to make the older woman disappear.
August 13, 2020
It's impossible not to get sucked into the social media nightmare that unfolds, which is made all the more excruciating by the exceptional performances.
May 11, 2020
Who You Think I Am is a compelling thriller about identity, deceit and the dreadful impact human beings can have on each other when they're concealed behind an avatar.
April 29, 2020
A slightly erratic, yet always compelling mix of mystery, comedy and social commentary.
April 23, 2020
Profound French melodrama about catfishing; sexual content.
April 22, 2020
Too much more detail about the narrative would take me into spoiler territory, so let's just say that it builds nicely and, in this day and age, entirely credibly, and that Claire's sessions with a psychologist give the story a useful framework.
April 18, 2020
An interesting piece of work that strikes a particular chord at the moment.
April 13, 2020
While Binoche is reliably magnetic and the fitfully pretty visuals match a ripped-from-the-headlines script, Who You Think I Am's pot never quite comes to the boil.
April 13, 2020
Binoche gives another outstanding performance in this thrilling psychological drama.
April 12, 2020
It all adds up to a very modern drama about age-old anxieties: the fear of ageing and death; the desire for intimacy and reassurance; the allure of artifice and deceit.
April 12, 2020
Juliette Binoche lets us feel the fragility of her character, Claire, an academic terrified of losing her looks in middle age, but the storyline, in which she catfishes a young man, is simply too improbable.
April 12, 2020
I've seen it twice and it's even better the second time.
April 12, 2020
But if all the red herrings fail to satisfy, Binoche going full Catfish is enough to reel us in.

April 10, 2020
Not even the treasure that is Juliette Binoche can make this cynical romantic thriller palatable. Does not say the things about social media and the lives of older women that it thinks it does.
April 9, 2020
A sensitive portrait of a woman navigating the minefields of her romantic landscape, juggling fears of a ticking clock and the simple yearning to feel tethered to another.
April 9, 2020
Takes a premise that could easily be adapted as a straight thriller and transforms it into a character drama of considerable empathy, albeit one that never excuses its protagonist.
April 9, 2020
Binoche's performance and the movie are elegant, ingenious and sexy.
April 8, 2020
The script gives the star the chance to explore all manner of messed-up ethics, but the legwork on screen is all Binoche's.
April 6, 2020
French filmmaker Safy Nebbou has a lot of fun with this dark and insinuating film's visual style, stirring innuendo and suspense into the imagery along with witty editing and an artful blurring of lines.
April 6, 2020
Unfortunately, the increasingly convoluted and silly plotting undermines any chance of an entertaining film, let alone one with anything meaningful to say.
