DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

PARIS, 13TH DISTRICT - Rone

"Blasts of Rone’s skittering pop score help lend a physical dimension to that sense of imbalance, which is sorely missing from the rest of a movie that hedges too many of its bets. The performances are uniformly involving in a way that belies the varied experience levels of Audiard’s cast -- newbie Zhang gives Emilie a megaton of impetuous oomph, up-and-comer Samba has the poise of a new star, Merlant is basically the Meryl Streep of hard-eyed sapphic desire, and musician Beth adds some outsider energy spice to the group -- but the characters themselves often bump into each other in needlessly contrived ways that fail to tease new details out of them."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"It’s not an immediately intuitive pairing of sensibilities; there’s little visual correspondence between Tomine’s wry, muted-color panels and the busy black-and-white images composed here by the cinematographer Paul Guilhaume, who likes to send the camera gliding through scene after scene. But Audiard has a deft way with source material (his recent adaptation of 'The Sisters Brothers' is one of his best movies), and here he tucks Tomine’s bruising ironies and lacerating observations into a sturdy overarching narrative powered by garden-variety lust, all-consuming love and the mighty blasts of Rone’s electronica score."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 

"Shot in black and white and based on comic book short stories by Adam Tomine, 'Paris, 13th District' feels like Audiard’s attempt to inaugurate a Millennial New Wave, 'Jules and Jim,' but with a synth-pop soundtrack courtesy of Rone. Though the film feels at times like a sociological manifesto on modern love penned by an older generation, its writing team, which includes Audiard, Léa Mysius, and 'Portrait of a Lady on Fire' writer Céline Sciamma, manages to capture both the real pitfalls and bouts of joy inherent to twentysomethings’ relationships. In particular, Sciamma’s contribution is palpable in the film’s vibrant portrayal of young people and their romances. The film is not shy about sexuality, nor about drugs; its characters party hard and hook up, but pivotally can’t seem to connect or find honest, uncomplicated relationships."
 
Caroline Tsai, The Playlist 
 
PETITE MAMAN - Para One
 
"The Sanz twins’ performances are similarly unembellished. When Nelly goes into the funhouse-mirror version of her grandmother’s house for the first time, she doesn’t scream, jump, or even giggle nervously. She just politely excuses herself and runs home. The dialogue is muted as well. The characters spend a good deal of time quietly enjoying each other’s company: Nelly and Marion build a tree fort, make pancakes, read, explore, and play pretend. Their simple activities shift emotional tenors like the notes of a gentle melody, depending on the context of the scene. Accompanied by an exquisite color palette and lush synthesizer music from Para One, the effect is like holding a little jewel in your hands, each of its facets catching the light."
 
Katie Rife, Polygon
