Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 12/01/2004
"The details become the discourse -- a constant flow of visual stimulation in place of the traditional development of plot, character, and theme."
Premiere - 12/01/2004
"[A]n epic treatment of epic themes that doesn't soap opera its audience, but at the same time provides a terrifically satisfying entertainment."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/03/2004
"[T]he counterpoint of ugliness and beauty, observed with the patience an artist might lavish upon a portrait of a beloved, is Jeunet's own invention."
New York Times - 11/26/2004
"Mr. Jeunet is in the possession of a distinctive visual style developed during his longtime collaboration with his former filmmaking partner, Marc Caro."
USA Today - 11/26/2004
"[I]t's full of surprises....Jeunet is as adept as Francois Truffaut was in employing voice-over narration -- but even better at providing counterpoint imagery to get a laugh."
Los Angeles Times - 11/26/2004
"[I]t's as charming and stylish as one could expect from this pair....All in all, Jeunet makes a pretty case for the idea that life is ruled by chaos and chance, but made meaningful and worthwhile by love."
Rolling Stone - 12/09/2004
"Just sit back and behold as Jeunet the visionary and Tautou the force of nature take you to hell and back with this epic love story. It's an emotional powerhouse."
Uncut - 02/01/2005
"[T]his is as much visual feast as quest plot: Jeunet energises every shot..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 12/01/2004
"[T]he battle scenes depicting the horrors of war are brutally effective."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2005
"Jeunet's film is a tour de force of style and talent..."
Wall Street Journal - 09/25/2009
“Daring mood swings -- and theme swings -- lend distinction to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's romantic epic....There's never been anything quite like it.”
