Our take

A cerebral romantic comedy that eagerly combines science fiction and fantasy, Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) conjures surprise after surprise in this imaginative, almost Buñuelian odyssey. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Gael García Bernal, and, oh yes, the legendary Miou-Miou.
