Critic Reviews for Un homme amoureux (A Man in Love)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A Man in Love is by Diane Kurys who made the good Peppermint Soda and the excellent Coup de Foudre... This is a big and undoubtedly expensive commercially oriented love story, and curiously empty by comparison.

July 21, 2021 | Full Review…

The characters by and large are tediously shallow and egocentric.

July 21, 2021 | Full Review…

The strength of the movie is in the way Kurys shows how Coyote's personality has affected and shaped those around him.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The tone is artificial and somewhat overburdened. [Full Review in Spanish]

June 15, 2020 | Full Review…

The title may refer to Coyote's obsession with his own wonders, but it's clear that in her way, Kurys has really made it about her love for the artificiality of cinema. But mostly her love of mediocrity.

March 13, 2012 | Full Review…

Conveys the repercussions of a torrid live affair.
