What we think

Written and directed by Nicolas Bedos, as though repurposing some unused idea abandoned by Charlie Kaufman, it's an engaging - if eventually overlong - drama-comedy with a killer concept.

What others think

In the end, the story’s custom reenactment gimmick may not even have been necessary, so well-written and executed is the personal journey that underlies it.
Peter Debruge Variety
It’s comedy-drama that is not funny enough to count as a comedy and not plausible enough to count as a drama.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
This is accomplished commercial filmmaking of a type rarely seen these days, much less applied to this kind of old-fashioned but sharp-minded material.
Todd McCarthy Hollywood Reporter
