DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

DON'T WORRY BABY - Charlie Klarsfeld
 
"Early on, the film establishes itself as more of a comedy more than a drama, and it shows: if one’s chest contains a heart, it is quite difficult to not smile throughout. With a fantastic score, rhythmic editing and a brisk 88-minute runtime, the film practically disappears. Hilarious and upbeat, it retains a familial core but does not allow itself to be bogged by sadder things. Perhaps this, and its sentimentality, explains why long exposure leaves a bit of a saccharine aftertaste. The gravity of the situation feels diluted by its aversion to drearier developments as significant emotional resonance is sacrificed, making way for a quirky and enjoyable little romp which impacts only occasionally before shrugging any heartbreak off in favor of simple contentment."
 
Jason Ooi, The Playlist

THE PEOPLE VS. FRITZ BAUER - Christoph M. Kaiser, Julian Maas
 
"Kraume’s tinkering with the historical record would be more welcome were he also shifting away from the standard biopic template, but much of the film strictly adheres to a hackneyed formal construction. Nearly every scene commences with an establishing shot, most featuring a car in motion or someone entering an office, accompanied by a note or two from the film’s defiantly nondescript soundtrack. Moreover, the televisual style of shot-reverse-shot and mostly balanced lighting produces a catatonic effect that dulls each scene’s cinematic potential. Given how little interest Kraume displays in dynamizing his images, it makes mustering any investment in his characters or revisionist plight all the more difficult."
 
Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

"The film’s handful of scenes set in Argentina most clearly betray Kraume’s background in television, with their cheap staging and tendency to prettify foreign locales, though generally, it would be hard to call the film cinematic in any way. Esther Walz's costumes are all dark and nondescript, though unfortunately the same can't be said of the film’s trumpet-driven score, which infuses the film with a jazzy vibe that feels thoroughly out of place, though I guess it at least complements the froufrou socks."
 
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

PHANTOM BOY - Serge Besset
 
"Opening with Saul Bass-inspired credits, and an eerie dream-like score by Serge Besset, 'Phantom Boy' starts small: Leo has been admitted into the hospital with an unnamed extremely serious illness. While there, he meets Alex, a scruffy injured cop, in the midst of trying to regain the trust of his exasperated superior after a crime scene mishap. Leo has always wanted to be a policeman and grills Alex on what it's like, and eventually he confesses that he can leave his body at night and float above the city. Turns out, a phantom boy can be very useful when going up against the most dangerous villain Manhattan has ever seen, a villain known as The Man With the Broken Face. Alex tries to solve the case from his wheelchair in the hospital, with the help of Mary Delaney, a spunky journalist on the lookout for a scoop, and Leo, the phantom who can float through walls and ceilings and report back what he sees."
 
Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com

SUMMERTIME - Gregoire Hetzel
 
"Jeanne Lapoirie's widescreen cinematography is luminous without overdosing on the bucolic prettiness of naked women making love in the meadows, while Gregoire Hetzel's sparingly used score and some period songs fill the soundtrack."
 
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
