Microbe and Gasoline
Two young outcasts build a ramshackle home-on-wheels and embark on an epic road trip across France. Playful coming-of-age adventure by Oscar®-winning director Michel Gondry, starring Amélie's Audrey Tautou.
A total charmer…immense and heartbreaking…seek this one out
Little White Lies
Wonderfully touching… A winsomely grounded coming-of-age tale
Packed with off-kilter, ramshackle charm... If this film were a person, you'd want to give it a big hug
This endearing coming-of-age tale may be one of pop auteur Michel Gondry's (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) most playful works of late
The Hollywood Reporter
This sweet, sensitive ride is a real treat
Its accomplishment is its ability to gaze steadily with warmth but minimal sentimentality at the world through unjaded 14-year-old eyes
New York Times
A wonderfully sincere portrait of two adolescent outsiders determined to pave their own way in the world
Unravels with an intoxicating unpredictability and humanity
The Young Folks
This beautiful film accomplishes what seldom few stories can by presenting a tale of youth and friendship and amplifying simple themes
A love letter to friendship...
The laughs are sometimes bigger than expected, and so are the emotions stirred by the bittersweet finale
Microbe & Gasoline is a film that understands the importance of reconnecting with the youthful vision of the world most of us abandon
Gondry brings a sense of heartfelt nostalgia, pathos and humor
Los Angeles Times
The heartfelt, personal Microbe & Gasoline may be Gondry's best work since the still incredible Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Charming... It communicates a very specific sense of place and culture, often in a way that seems effortless
Like the film's home on wheels, should you strip away its roof, the small scale frame would reveal a very large heart
What's fresh here is the immediacy of the characters and the moments
A charming...portrait of an adolescent friendship that finds expression in a quirky road trip.... It's one that's well worth taking
One Guy's Opinion
The final seconds here, involving a painfully true-seeming separation and an unexpected switch of perspective, are among the loveliest [Gondry] has yet offered to cinema
An appealingly offbeat and intelligent teen comedy
Gondry has always worn his heart on his sleeve, which remains endearing - especially when he shows that he still has a few more tricks left up it
Gondry's most deeply felt film since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
