"[A] beautifully bittersweet and generous movie."
— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"Léa Seydoux is quietly radiant in a bittersweet character study."
— Tim Cogshell, AV Club
"One Fine Morning is beautifully balanced, persuasive and moving."
— Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"This is a big movie served up in a surprisingly small, intimate package."
— Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
"A profound and captivating portrait of love, lost, found, and ever-remaining."
— Katie Walsh, TheWrap
"Léa Seydoux shines...The French actress is superb in this tender portrait of a woman trying to balance her needs with those of others."
— Thomas Floyd, Washington Post
"In the quietly miraculous One Fine Morning (Un beau matin), writer-director Mia Hansen-Løve and her leading lady Léa Seydoux make the old feel new again."
— Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter
"There’s a wistful, warm feeling when wandering into a Hansen-Løve film. Hers are delicate dramas keenly tuned to the rhythm of daily life, and “One Fine Morning” is her most radiant film yet."
— Jake Coyle, The Associated Press
"Like in her previous works, director Hansen-Løve has a gentleness when painting the portrait of women living and enduring in transitions, often exiting the bubble of a relationship or (re)entering."
— Caroline Cao, Slashfilm
"Hansen-Love finds moments of truth in the melange, and Seydoux is transcendent, carrying a sadness inside which proves incredibly moving when the opportunity for love presents itself and she melts into it."
— Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
"This could have easily become a torrid, tear-jerking melodrama, but Hansen-Løve’s matter-of-fact approach to performance and incident allow the emotions to emerge organically from the unfussy drama onscreen."
— Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"In small ways, Hansen-Løve allows One Fine Morning to break the viewer’s heart, but overall the film is unexpectedly hopeful. One Fine Morning is also about starting again and finding joy in the midst of sadness."
— Emily Zemler, Observer
"It explores love, both romantic and familial, with no trace of drama or sappiness, and without ever feeling slight. It’s a balm of a film and another glorious showcase for the director’s light touch when dealing with complicated emotions."
— Anna Bogutskaya, Time Out
"Shot in gorgeous natural light by Denis Lenoir (the cinematographer on all but one of her films since Eden), and backed by a soundtrack of typically esoteric needle-drops, the director delivers her finest in years by doing what she’s always done best: a humanistic story of when to love and when to let go."
— Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage
"Seydoux brings both parts of this story together with grace and charm, and an honesty that makes this one of her best performances so far. Hansen-Løve’s story is deceptively light, yet packs an emotional wallop as it explores the impact that love—and our separation from such love—can have on a person."
— Ross Bonaime, Collider
"The story’s ellipses and graceful structure are certainly admirable, but what elevates One Fine Morning is the texture of Sandra’s emotions, the revelation of her character, the hunger of her embrace, the wildness of her mouth, the stillness of her sated body, and the love that she gives and will movingly embrace once more."
— Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"The scenarios of Hansen-Løve’s films can feel rarified and unique at first glance, yet they are painfully relatable on some level. They may be devoid of melodramatic showdowns, but there’s a quiet ferocity to them in the way they so deftly address our daily pain, insecurity, and loneliness, still resonating with us long after the movie’s over."
