Reviews

From award-winning director, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) comes Little White Lies, a joyous portrayal of friendship and humanity. Featuring a truly exceptional ensemble cast; including the Academy and BAFTA award winning actress Marion Cotillard (Inception); and the César ‘Best Actor’ award winner François Cluzet. Walking the fine line between laughter and tears Canet directs some of France’s most skillful performers to deliver startlingly intimate performances.

Every year Max (François Cluzet), a successful restaurant owner, invites his family and friends to his beautiful beach house. But this year the vacation is not all fun in the sun as each guest raises the veil that for years has covered their true feelings. Their relationships, convictions and friendships are sorely tested when finally forced to own up to the little white lies they have been telling each other.

No one does movies like the French. Somehow they manage to capture the human condition in a most profound way. Think Jean de Florette, Manon des Sources, Mon Pere Ce Heros, The Grocer's Son.........

The characters in Little White Lies are very well developed and all of them, (even the bad tempered Max), are endearing. Because of the way the characters have been drawn, the storyline is complex and engaging, and it is a real tearjerker, which also makes you laugh out loud. Not many films are able to walk you through a whole range of human emotions in one sitting.

Even though the character Ludo, (around whom the story and other characters are woven), is not there in body, he is always present and again, its not easy to keep a character in someone's mind when he's off screen or not always involved in the dialogue. A real achievement.

This really is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. A real breath of freshair - head and shoulders above anything that Hollywood pumps out these days.

It's original, beautiful and unmissable.

I didn't find this film funny like others have here, but instead found it to be a film about the tensions and antagonisms between people. Following an accident Ludo is in hospital in intensive care. His large group of friends decide to up and off to the holiday on the coast that they had planned anyway. Before the trip Vincent declares his love to Max setting off a reaction in him that for the most part spoils the holiday for the others in the party. There are other antagonisms within the group and you're left feeling that the absent Ludo was the glue holding them all together. not really very happy viewing but a good film

French film about a group of friends aged in their 20s who go on holiday leaving their friend in the high dependency unit of a hospital following a road accident. They've all got secrets they would prefer that their friends were not aware of but during the vacation evens transpire to reveal those secrets to comic effect making an excellent film about the human condition. If fell down slightly because it laboured a few of the points and several scenes , especially towards the end , became a bit over sentimental - it could have been shortened by a least half an hour, but all in all a good film.

I was dubious about seeing this film because I had never seen a foreign film before and didn't know if I would still enjoy it with subtitles. However, I went along to one of the local cinemas that had got this film, and I was blown away. The film begins introducing all the characters and slowly you get to grips with how they all know each other and the storyline can start - it does this relatively quickly. From the off, the jokes are so cleverly hilarious everyone in the cinema was laughing incredibly loudly and pretty much uncontrollably. There are some events in the film which will absolutely tickle you to the point where you talk about them for days and want to see the film again just for the brilliant laugh it gives you. One particular storyline should have you on your back with laughter and it's a running theme all the way through.
As well as being superbly funny, this film also has a meaningful storyline, looking at a critically injured friend and how the characters deal with that, relationships, and the friendship between the group that we see. This story is told well, with well cast actors and actresses portraying their characters excellently. The film is believable which is a strange thing to see these days I think - we mostly have outrageous things happening in comedies, but in this film, though the occasional idea is a bit far fetched, you can still very much imagine it being the case.
The one thing I would caution people about is the duration of the film - it does last for a good 2.5-3 hours, so you need to have plenty of time to sit down and watch it. This is, however, the only fault I can really pick with it - and even then it's not a fault, because the film really is so funny I wasn't keen for it to end anyway! So if you have a spare three hours, give this a watch. If you don't have a spare three hours, fit them in somewhere because this film really is worth your time!!

A watchable movie about a group of self-involved friends who go on vacation together leaving one of their friends behind in Paris. The music is good but the storyline lacks some originality. Very reminiscent of 'The Big Chill'.

This truly remarkable film from the much celebrated director, Guillaume Canet is an acerbic look at the quite uniquely excessive, and therefore a bit irritating, love life of the French. While it is a highly compelling and bittersweet comedy of manners, what appeals to me most about the movie is that it is an emotional rollercoaster which cleverly and seamlessly balances tragedy with the joys of youthful life.

The opening sequence is so brilliantly realised that the viewer is subjected to a suspenseful sense of an impending disaster soon after the main titles fade out. There begins the uneasy, first chapter of the film, wherein the most likely reaction of the viewer to the increasingly self-obsessed and excessive antics of this closely-knit group of fast-maturing friends would be irritation, if not derision. However, as the story develops to unravel the true character of the individuals and the underlying reasons for their erratic behaviour, you begin to sympathise with them, to the extend that fond memories of your past relationships appear to synchronise with the viewing experience.

‘Little White Lies’ is so well conceived and executed that when it ends a sense of longing, similar to that of departing your best friends after a memorable time together, creeps into the mind as if by magic.

Characterisations and performance of the film are plausible and astounding, and the whole thing just comes together like a dream. Without any doubt, this is European cinema at its most appealing.
