Review Mesmerizing...Epic...Sublimely beautiful...An affectionate, dreamlike elegy to youthful idealism (Film Comment, 2006-09-05)

Louis Garrel confirms himself as one of the most compelling new French performers of the moment (London Film Festival, 2006-09-05)

Strikingly original...Highly textured, expressive photography (Screen International, 2006-09-05)

A black and white love letter to the 1960's... (Garrel) a brooding, impossibly beautiful leading man (The Sunday Times, 2006-09-05)
