  • It's tedious watching Lila's pouting irrationality without any sense of why this woman is catnip apart from her physical attractions.

  • The camera's ironic eye on... dissatisfying mini-relationships is sometimes touching, sometimes funny, sometimes a little irritating. But overall, the takeaway is warmly human.

  • The aesthetic of the film and the sense of intimacy it creates are also straight out of the Kechiche playbook, and that's high praise indeed for anyone making inroads into directing.

  • Herzi proves extremely good at getting relaxed, spontaneous performances from her cast, and from herself.
