WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

60

Village Voice by J. Hoberman

Like a Hollywood fairy tale, Lola is always threatening to turn into a musical. Its edge as a film comes from the fact that it never quite does.
70

New Times (L.A.) by Jean Oppenheimer

Shot in black and white by the renowned Raoul Coutard, and with a score by Michel Legrand, the film represents an idealized view of reality that will strike some viewers (including this one) as overly sentimental.
