  1. Emmanuel Carrère's witty, elegant La Moustache is a deliciously unsettling, beautifully sustained enigma, a film of much beauty and flawless performances, especially from Vincent Lindon in one of his most demanding roles.
  2. An intriguing study of identity, marriage and, perhaps, madness.
  3. 88
    Comes on as both a rebuke to male vanity and a chic metaphor for midlife panic.
  4. Elegant and enjoyably disorienting.

    Over the river and through the woods to nowhere.

    Shades of Fellini, but not quite so frustrating. La Moustache is definitely no nonentity, nor is it memorable. It was an admirable project with some good moments. Stick it out and you will appreciate a picture about a couple experiencing a strange hallucinatory moment in their marriage. Hollywood could use a lesson here. Full Review »

    Excelent movie that questions reality and relationships. Do not look for the "meaning" of the mustache, just enjoy the mystery.
