Rafael Félix’s review published on Letterboxd:
Having watched this right after watching The Sparks Brothers its clear to me that its more a Sparks lyrical querkiness piece than a Leos Carax musical, which is, I think, a shame for both parts, at least for what I feel this could have been.
With that said, I enjoyed the film, it has great music, a fantastic cast (weirdly enough Simon Helgerg stole the show for me) and Carax's cinematography is always wonderful. The film got me emotional a couple of times, but at first view, I felt a bit more cold than I expected to be.
I like the film, but its not the film I wanted to see. Which is probably what Sparks actually intended so yeah...point taken.
