Critics reviews

The kids probably won’t remember a word of it after summer vacation, but that doesn’t really matter; the speech, like the improvisatory funny business that precedes it, is addressed to adult viewers. That the Nouvelle Vague’s “sentimental favorite” also happened to be its resident misanthrope doesn’t help to clear things up, but the movie’s sincere even in its shortcomings.
