FULL MOON IN PARIS
"Ranks with the very best of Rohmer. Enlightened self-deception is the system in this tiny universe, and it's invigoratingly comic to behold."
- Vincent Canby, The New York Times
"It's as elegant and incisive a comedy of manners as ever from Rohmer."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out London
"Out of this Lubitschian tangle Rohmer finds Le Beau Mariage in reverse, and couches it in terms of pure rhythm still unappreciated by bookish critics."

Official Selection - Karlovy Vary Int'l Film Festival
"Engrossing...pure poetry in motion!"
- Gary Kramer, Philadelphia Metro
"A constant to-and-fro of aspiration and adversity..."

LINES OF WELLINGTON
"[An] epic historical pageant! ...this rambunctious, rollicking affair sends its creator off with full military honours."
- Xan Brooks, The Guardian
"Handsome, generally well acted...and a detailed and smart look at a point in history."
- Oliver Lyttleton, The Playlist
"The grandeur of the production is impressive. Also, it's impossible not to enjoy that bizarre performance from John Malkovich."
- Caitlin Hughes, FilmSchoolRejects
"...this film is beautiful in its dappled-sunshine light, and powerful in the story of transformation that it tells. And Rivoire, a deaf French student who had never acted before, makes Marie both fierce and achingly vulnerable. Toward the end, we see her outside as snow gently falls; she reaches out, touching the flakes, rejoicing in something she somehow knows is joy."
- Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times
"Marie's Story is lovely and sweet, sad and uplifting.... it satisfies them nicely with vivid performances, beautiful imagery, and compassionate direction."
- Sean Axmaker, Seattle Weekly
"An assured, emotionally satisfying French offering. Carré...plays her determined character with moving obstinacy and grace."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Bercot is heartbreaking, and Cassel has never been better... it's clear that Ma?wenn has something to say - and a clear, strong style with which to express it."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Perhaps what's really different about this film, unlike the innumerable others where someone falls in love with someone else who turns out to be bad news, is that it's from a woman's perspective for a change, and she's the relatively sane one bewitched by beauty and charm."
- Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
"Ma?wenn wants to explore the sort of toxic long-term relationship that can ensnare even the sanest, wisest people...seeking to understand how luckless individuals stuck in on-again/off-again relationships remain trapped."
- Tim Grierson, Paste
