A Christmas Tale

A holiday treat directed by Arnaud Desplechin: as much a magnet for powerhouse cast Catherine Deneuve, Mathieu Amalric, Hippolyte Girardot, Melvil Poupaud, Chiara Mastroianni and Emmanuelle Devos as it was for praise by US critics.

"Almost indecently satisfying." - Scott, NY Times

"Smart, outrageous and a real treat" - Turan, LA Times

"Improbably funny and very beautiful" - Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"Like getting to know a family not your own by leafing through its scrapbooks and laughing at its photograph albums, while it bickers in the next room over stuff you may never understand." - Lane, New Yorker

"If Ingmar Bergman and Wes Anderson somehow collaborated on a movie together, I'd guess their sensibilities would yield something like A CHRISTMAS TALE" - Lumenick, NY Post

"Out of the most ordinary ingredients, an ailing mother, estranged adult siblings, a good meal ruined by bad behavior the endlessly inventive French filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin has made the old look fresh." - Schwarzbaum, EW
