    I don't know why critics gave this movie scores that high. I was bored a significant part of it. At times the movie was quite interesting, the end intriguing but overall it is not a movie that I will remember in one week...

    Certified Copy is cynical and postmodern and may be true to the reality of some. The style of the performance is a kind of anguished improv (which is certainly different).

    The languages spoken throughout Certified Copy slide easily amongst Italian, French, and English, further creating the sense of none of them being authentic.

    In some ways, it's a simple character drama, but the central conundrum disallows an uncomplicated interpretation. I was never bored.

    A mental workout of the most invigorating sort.
