Critics reviews

This exceptional ensemble drama—cast with a Who’s Who of up-and-coming French actors circa 1998—feels like Assayas’ tribute to his mentor… The big giveaway that this is un film de Olivier Assayas and not de André Téchiné is the style: jittery, kinetic, slightly disorienting, with a motile camera that is pretty much the opposite of Téchiné’s plaintive-but-unsentimental visual classicism.
