    "An okay telling of the last days of Renoir, his son and a model who inspired them both. It's kind of slow and not all that interesting, but the cinematography is gorgeous and worth the price of admission."

    "This movie had its moments, but overall I didn't like it all that much. I didn't find a lot of the characters very believable, and it may have been lost in translation, but a lot of the dialogue felt clunky. Wasn't a terrible watch but just wasn't as good as I'd expected it to be."

    "I do not really watch French movies but i gave this one a shot . It was subtitled and i really rather subs than dubbed version. It had me laughing so much, the actress did a great job in this one. Her and the actor looked and really meshed well on screen I will definitely be watching more french movies from now on . "

    " You can select your version at the beginning of the DVD. The closed captions (old fashioned white text on black background) are in French only, no matter what version of the movie. The subtitles (modern but hard to read white text with thin black outlines) are in English only, also no matter what version of the movie. The cinematography is vibrant with many bright scenes, making it difficult to read the subtitles. If you are deaf like me, you will have to disable the CC on your TV or computer and enable the subtitles."

    "Lulu is a French film directed by Solveig Anspach and stars Karin Viard, Bouli Lanners, Claude Gensac and featuring Vincent Londez. Lulu is sort of a coming of age film but for those who have passed their youth, it's about finding yourself after you've realized the person you thought you were is not the person you are, or want to be. After a failed interview a young French woman embarks on a journey of discovery, discovering who she really is, who she wants to become and what her true passions really are. As she travels and sails the world she meets a mosaic of different characters who all have something to teach, say and pass down. Through this journey, she comes to realize that not getting the job wasn't a failure but a blessing, a new opportunity. Lulu seems like the perfect film to get one motivated about life, to see that life can still be a great adventure if you allow yourself to walk through the doors that have been opened or just a great film to watch and enjoy on a Sunday, streaming it from your Amazon Prime."

    "This seems like an idea that a hipster college student would think up for a film school project. Title is attention grabbing, plot is something mundane but with a twist. I wouldn't be surprised if it used some trendy film technique like one continuous shot the whole movie. "
