Upon her arrival, Agathe grudgingly agrees to take part in a documentary being made by the blundering duo of Karim an aspiring filmmaker, and self-professed "reporter" Michel, on the subject of “successful women." As Agathe's life hilariously unravels, the camera is there to capture it all. (IFC Film) Expand

  1. Jaoui neatly, gently, firmly slips political commentary into Let It Rain's articulate mayhem.
  2. Needlessly complicated, life already has more than enough petty dramas. Let It Rain may not be funny in a ha-ha sense, but it gave me an amused open-mouthed appreciation of life’s absurdities, including unanticipated nuisances like bad weather.

    There’s not much left to chew on when the movie is over; when Resnais adapted Jaoui and Bacri’s scripts, he added a visual counter-narrative that’s absent from Jaoui’s more functional approach. But a passing delight is a delight all the same.

    Despite an initial forecast of smart laughs and witty tete-a-tetes, the French dramedy Let It Rain winds up being a partly cloudy affair that lacks the cohesiveness of Agnes Jaoui’s two previous features, "The Taste of Others" and "Look at Me."
  5. This is very much an actors’ film, not least because director-scripter Agnes Jaoui also appears in front of the camera in the well-seasoned role of Agathe Villanova.
  6. The performances are excellent, even if none of the characters are all that likeable or involving.
  7. It's all a little insular and very conversational, but the setting is cozy and the performances all pleasantly low-key.
