"Pure entertainement. There is literally no depth to this movie. So, while entertaining, it is also very forgettable. It was also very stupid at times. It is shamed by Bresson's A Man Escaped made 6 years prior."

"As far as rom-coms go, it is pretty cute in the first hour. Then it feels compelled to satisfy all the criteria of the genre and gets extremely formulaic and kinda lame. It plays a lot on the beauty of Mélanie Bernier, who's probably the prettiest woman to have walked this earth."

"Contrived and elusive. It merely gave me a sense of 'neither me nor the writers have any idea what's going on'. There's no real plot, more of an avalanche of allusions, hints, metaphors..."

"Almost unintelligible if you haven't seen the series. It only works as a refresher."

"A mixture of the tropes of the genre and a final attempt at philosophical scifi with some very poetic structure. All in all very elusive, it tries to tackle too many topics at the same time (or beats about the bush of its main topic) and features a lot of loose ends, of extremely unclear topics/characters. It is thus very hard to interpret. Is it a failure or a direct display of the fact that 'it's impossible to understand somebody else'? In the end, I see it as pseudo-profound BS."

"I wanted to like it so much but I can't. It fails exactly in the same way as 'Get Out': the first part is great and tackles the systematic issues (exploitation of workers), but the second part completely changes tone and becomes a caricature that lacks subtlety although there is still a lot of marxist subtext. The love story is cringeworthy and useless. The movie focuses on a scab and ridicules the activist as lecherous. "

"Fully emotional and not at all intellectual. "

"Terry Gilliam has no time to spare for your concerns. He has too many ideas, whether visual or intellectual, to be able to explore them fully. He instead crams everything together in 2 hours for a mindboggling experience with pseudo and real loose ends everywhere. Unfortunately suffers from poor editing and so many mismatches between cuts..."
