Critics reviews

Baumbach’s best trait as a filmmaker remains his handling of actors — at least his major actors… Like Renoir and Truffaut, he’s often at his best dealing with the interactions of friends hanging out together and enjoying one another’s company; for edgier, less comfortable moments he might want to learn a lesson or two from the gauche directness of Cherot.
