  1. DSPRKY's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Another excellent Assayas film. This one is a very personal, possibly even semi-autobiographical (?), story about the tension between revolutionary ideals and artistic conviction. Lola Créton is great as always and Assayas brings these characters, who could have so easily been caricatures of '68 socialist types, to life convincingly.

    Am Ende des Sommers kühlt sich Gilles Interesse für Politik und die Revolution aber wieder ab und er beschliesst, zurückzukehren in die Schule. Er überlegt, einen Film zu machen mit Monstern und Nazis. Vielleicht wirds die perfekte Fusion aus Kunst und Politik?

  3. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Something in the Air

    The story of a young artist growing up in early 70s France, trying to decide between two callings: art and political activism. Beautiful people, drugs, political pamphlets, art and other cool stuff. A nice but rather average movie that doesn't stand out from similar French dramas. Once again, you get the impression that in France they only teach philosophy and literature at school, which sounds great, yet I wonder...

  4. Siaudebert's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Well made for costumes and atmosphere, nice picture of the past, good selected tracks and not too much music, just an appropriate touch. But also just another movie on youngsters after 68, like Le Péril Jeune was much better - touching that it has to be his story and his encountering of Art

  6. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Assayas does a fine job of capturing the transition of leftist class struggle from a broad movement tied to lived reality into a lifestyle subculture.

    Um mediano a tender para o insuficiente...

  13. analeorne's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Just can't get over the fact that Clément Métayer's hair makes him look like he's a member of The Horrors.

  15. Adrian Sim's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Ah…the careless wonderment of youth...where the world is your playground...your convictions are your currency…everything is possible. Olivier Assayas captures all that heady and befuddling hedonism of 70's hippiedom and revolutionary movements in one fell swoop.

  16. Raluca Elena Covaci's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Artistic awakening! The scenes of Giles sketching and drawing are the best parts of this film- fluid and expressive. If anything, this film is worth watching at least for these pieces.

  17. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Something in the Air

    More personal and intellectual than properly striking or bold, this film certainly must have a huge sentimental value for its author, but for me it just became likeable and partly satisfying. Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/06/something-in-air-2012.html

  19. msmichel's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Assayas casts a somewhat auto-biographical eye back on his student days circa '71 with this somewhat meandering and unengaging work. He captures that student milieu, that shared sense of both futility and promise, which was even more fruitful in the years close after the '68 uprisings. What he fails to capture is anything beyond that perceived emptiness or even the sense of failed promise or dreams compromised.

  20. Abby.'s rating of the film Something in the Air

    My most anticipated film of 2012. I can't wait to see this.

  21. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film Something in the Air

    A good depiction of France in the early 70s. A group of activist teenagers trying to follow their ideals and confronting the reality of life...

  23. arlinda's rating of the film Something in the Air

    Was there really something in the air? I think I missed it.

  24. rado's rating of the film Something in the Air

    More a painting than a conventional drama, it shows a character frozen in time until the decision about what to do with his life frees him from limbo.
