Critic Reviews for Stolen Holidays (Les Petites Vacances)
Les Petites Vacances is quietly effective and deeply sympathetic.
Les Petites vacances is sunny on the surface, but subtly disconcerting.
This is a stylish performance from Lafont, and though I wondered if she wasn't withholding too much interior turmoil from the camera, it is very assured work from Peyon.
It's a characteristically French film - in the UK, the same story would be big on whimsy and lovable eccentrics, but in the Gallic take there's a chilly bleakness that cuts like the wind from the mountains that provide the backdrop to the story.
Anchored by a superb performance from the veteran French New Wave actress Bernadette Lafont, Les Petites Vacances is an absorbing road movie from debut writer/director Olivier Peyon.
