  1. Philippe Blasband's screenplay is witty and economical, and the film's editing is crisp.
  2. Starts gently, with amusing drollness, then gets more serious, even provocative, without sacrificing its light touch. This is very much a film with something on its mind.

    A funny and original film set in a future when communications are even more refined than they are now.

    Although he's invisible, his poignant desire to overcome his isolation makes this film an interesting, frequently funny, and cautionary riff on our increasingly computer-bound society.

    It's squeamish about sex but not, unfortunately, sentiment.
  6. 50
    The movie itself isn't as interesting as the conversations you can have about it. It duplicates Thomas' miserable world so well we want to escape it as urgently as Thomas does.
  7. Since we never see Thomas, we can't care for him. And he's hardly a sympathetic "hero" in his treatment of women and his insistence that other characters honor his personal boundaries while he ignores theirs.
