    Really sweet and moving. The people in it felt like real people. The music is lovely. It's a different kind of movie, you need an open mind, but it's one of my fave indies of recent years

    Not only does the movie look like it's set somewhere, it feels, cinematically, to have arrived from someplace - early John Cassavetes, the French New Wave, Eastern Europe.

    Equally nostalgic and fresh-faced, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench is a bohemian musical that owes as much to Cassavetes "Shadows" as it does the French musicals of the '30s.

    Damien Chazelle's extraordinary black-and-white retro dream of a feature debut.
