Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

Wholly delightful, assured and typically idiosyncratic fable…a hugely charming piece, wondrously inventive, consistently witty, engaging in its devotion to the joys of wine, women and song
TIME OUT

An enchantment…witty, cool and refreshingly unstrident….the dialogue is minimal, one’s attention is focused exclusively on the visuals – but what visuals! There’s so much to be seen in a single shot, in any single shot
THE INDEPENDENT

(Iosseliani) directs like a choreographer, his mise-en-scène a pas de deux between actors and camera…utterly compelling
THE NEW YORK TIMES

A hypnotic, distanced farce about French class envy that observes its characters’ folly and fate and the masterful performance by a giant Marabou stork with perfect timing
