Film Reviews:

 

 A comical and tender romantic comedy that points its cursor where it is needed: without mockery but with humor and modesty.

                                          - La Voix du Nord (translated from French)

 

A tender, original and hilarious romantic comedy.

                                          - Le Parisien (translated from French)

 

Pascal Elbé has put a piece of himself into this tender film, drawing on his own experiences of hearing loss to uniquely portray the struggles of modern connection. Hear Me Out is a wholesome and moving story that will have audiences crying and laughing at the same time.
