    It's hard to imagine many films surpassing or even equaling the effect of this supple, breathtakingly direct, small French film.
  2. The downbeat story unfolds in quick, incisive slashes in which the combination of minimal dialogue and gorgeous black-and-white photography lends the movie a chilly documentary realism.
  3. An exceptionally perceptive film about what it's like to be 19 years old.
  4. One of those rich girl/bad boy things that defy understanding and leave you on the outside. Fascinated, but on the outside.
  5. 63
    Like all of Jacquot's movies, it's not crazy enough.
  6. Its gorgeous black-and-white photography, dirty and matte, will almost convince you that anything this slow, small and bereft of dialogue must be important.
  7. It's a slow and laborious persona piece.

    There's no jump-cuts, or anything particular deconstructionist about "A Tout de Suite", but the breathtaking effect that black and white There's no jump-cuts, or anything particular deconstructionist about "A Tout de Suite", but the breathtaking effect that black and white photography has on Islid LeBesco, helps the viewer imagine what this ingenue would look like in one of Jean Luc Goddard's lovers on the lam films(such as 1965's "Pierrot le fou") during the iconoclast's heyday. As Lili, LeBesco is absolutely spot-on in portraying how the love of a nineteen-year-old girl would transform her from an art student to a fugitive of the law. LeBesco is one of only a handful of actresses who can pull off the trick of being both erotic and sweet. We shouldn't feel sad for the beautiful, but when Lili is betrayed by her hooligan lover, that radiant glow on Le Besco's face disappears and you're a little startled by how vulnerable she suddenly looks. "A Tout de Suite" then tells a different kind of story. Finding herself suddenly alone, we see how men and women gravitate, or is that prey, on the young and beautiful. We saw heart, but these people just want her body. If you see "A Tout de Suite", you'll see a star in the making, and the most ravishing use of black and white photography since the Coen Brothers' "The Man Who Wasn't There". Collapse
