Critics reviews

Akerman’s flowing images stick close to Michelle in her wanderings through town and capture her romantic adventures with a disarming bluntness. Audaciously filming in the streets with no attempt to conceal anachronistic artifacts and fashions, Akerman marks the contemporary world with the buried feelings of her own youth, as if to prove Faulkner’s dictum, "The past is not dead. In fact, it’s not even past.

…Akerman’s episode is an achievement of an entirely different level. It moves beyond being one of the great coming-of-age films; it is simply one of the great films. A moving, multifaceted, and magical hour, presented with honesty and subtle artistry.
