  1. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Cinema du look cool, achingly 80s cool. Black&white shots to frame and to put on your wall and to think yep, they were cool. With so much coolness it is difficult to communicate, except without technical gadgets - car telephones, door phones, televisions, radios. Like the old deaf guy in the film says: the young generation is not talking enough, they think it’s not worth it. Tragic, but cool.

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    France's Orson Welles makes his debut at the same age as Welles and doffs his cap at "Citizen Kane"with a shot of the snow flakes falling within the paperweight. Both wrote their original scripts. Visually awesome. When there is music (David Bowie's song) or silence, you take notice. The two major players are very good, Ms Perrier is truly charming and attractive., while Lavant has only to play out his odd character.

  3. Constance Bennett's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Intoxicating. 100% deserves its cult status.

  4. João Pedro Afonso's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Shoplifters of the nouvelle vague // unite and take over!

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Un premier long métrage et déjà comme Orson Welles avec "Citizen Kane" (dont on fait référence avec la boule de verre remplie de neige) une forme de chef-d'oeuvre en miniature. Bon vent à Raul Ruiz, Paul Vecchiali et Leos Carax, le triumvirat triomphant du nouveau cinéma français des années 1980... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Feellikeanumber's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    7/10 Yes, it's a pretensios mix of ideas, arresting cinematography and meandering through Paris. But under that there is definitely something important. It's clearly a debut picture, but it shows us what's Carax can and will do in his future (next) films. P.S. I would never thought that 'Dead Kennedys' could sound so romantic and sad.

  8. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

  9. daxterpt999's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    A sum of (very powerful) forces, a manual of sorts: I'm left in the middle, some of the forces pulling me; the others pushing.

  10. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

  11. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Of the "boring but interesting" variety. Lavant is brilliant, of course.

  12. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

  13. postblueink's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    6.5/10 (17. 07. 2017). a very good start for Carax and too many following to classic new-wave idols.

  14. Shantal Abrego's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    El amor y el desamor están en decadencia. Esta película es una oda a la naturaleza de la soledad amorosa.

  15. drewe's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    essaie encore, terrien.

  16. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

  17. Renton47's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    In the pantheon of debut's it's strong, but also always feels like one. Clearly in love with the possibility of cinema, it plays as an homage to boy meets girl before spiraling into deconstruction, a pop song that becomes a philosophy lesson. Staggeringly stylish with gorgeous photography, it's too rife with the affectation of youthful seriousness, but the talent is evident.

  18. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    A biopic of love itself, 'Boy Meets Girl' is Carax's most melancholy work- although it's not without his signature whimsicality and wicked sense of humor. Probably the best first film ever.

  19. Marina's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Like reading love poems in the mirror

  22. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    The black and white beauty of sadness

  23. Derrière chaque paupière des oeillades's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

  24. Sybille and Scott Roth's rating of the film Boy Meets Girl

    Cinematography is beautiful and many shots captivating. It's been a lot of years between this film and Holy Motors, but both similar in style. The storyline is a little immature and slow.
