Our take

Only the vaudevillian trio of Abel-Gordon-Romy can make the classic odd-couple formula feel this charming and absurdist. Shaking off the chains of ordinary life, the film’s wacky lovebirds stumble and dance their way through increasingly whimsical terrains—including a Méliès-inspired underwater set!
