    Wry and sometime bitter movie about love. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Can't hold a candle to Robert Altman's 1992 comedy "The Player." Both films present themselves as knowing views of the movie business, but Mr. Altman and his writer, Michael Tolkin, really knew. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    It isn't a good movie, but it is diverting, a showcase for Anouk Aimee, Greta Scacchi and Ron Silver, and a peephole on behind-the-scenes moves. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Even the women in Festival in Cannes feel more like sketches than fully realized people -- the aging actress, the naive hopeful, the newly minted starlet -- leaving you nothing but the showbiz satire to chew on. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    In crafting an insider's perspective, Jaglom has done an effective job. It's too bad that nearly everything else fails. show more
