  1. Magical movie, which has brilliant fun with the contrasts between film and theater, love and infatuation, reality and fantasy.
  2. 90
    It's undeniably a trifle, but rarely is something like this done with such skill and, well, savoir-faire.
  3. 90
    Va Savoir doesn't so much flow as wander, trailing off into drama one minute, slapstick the next; it tries your patience, but ever so gently, masterfully.
  4. Readily accessible, slyly subversive and perfectly delightful film.
  5. On a Paris rooftop about an hour into this 2-hour film, the tone shifts and the atmosphere lightens into giddy farce.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    It's an engaging diversion from a master director who, at the ripe age of 78, appears to be once again at the top of his game.
  7. Lacks the scariness, the mystery, and even much of the curiosity of Rivette's better work.

    A film for extremely patient adult viewers, it explores the dynamics of conflicted multiple love interests and how those involved get bogged down in taking themselves too seriously. A full 40 minutes elapses before the story's component constitute a cohesive and interesting plot. A fine film in many respects, but it simply does not contain enough content to justify its length. A single moment of pure hilarity would have done wonders. Collapse
