Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris (2020)
For his first feature film, Place des Victoires, Yoann Guillouzouic signs a tender and emotional drama.
— CNews (translated from French)
A touching film about distress on the streets and the difficulty of overcoming it.
— Femme Actuelle (translated from French)
There's a bit of Une époque formidable in this Place des Victoires. Not just because these two films share the actor Richard Bohringer, whom we are happy to see again as a grumpy man with a big heart.
— Première (translated from French)
Good feelings permeate this encounter in the form of a double rescue, which makes a nice nod to Charlie Chaplin's Kid.
