  1. lo0226's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    L'un de mes films français préférés. Une profondeur, un message et un film qui ne me laisse pas indifferent.

  2. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    Opens with real verve and energy thanks to an excellent soundtrack and editing in the title sequence and early scenes. So I was a bit disappointed that after these initial positive impressions it didn't develop into something more unusual or arresting. That said, it still works as a heart-warming and affectionate portrayal of family bonds, tribulations, celebrations and loss. Sentimental and charming.

  3. CJG's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    Beautifully poignant moments. And some laugh out loud. Nicely shot and constructed. Lovely performances. I cried.

  4. Paul Capewell's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    A rich, deep, and well-made film. Plenty of detail and care. A moving portrayal of really quite ordinary family life. Although fairly 'ordinary' throughout, there is a good number of exquisite scenes along the way.

  5. raggiodisole's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    solid, packed full, pacy enough, but still just a family drama. Liked, can't get excited about.

    A pleasant ride through a quirky, but very normal, family life.

  14. Superfrog's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    I really really liked this. Not a masterpiece that will leave a trace in the history of cinema, yet it manages to achieve exactly what it aims for, a life-sized representation of the expectations of life in French culture. The fact that it is actually unachievable for the great majority of my generation to achieve this model, makes the whole experience bitter-sweet.,

  17. B Star's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    A lovely yet very moving film, subtle and deep in places. This family could be yours or mine.

  18. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

    "Moira" and "Delphine" stories are great. Fleur is the most annoying slut ever. Depressing finale, i don't recomment it.
