REVIEW                                

“Tour à tour drôle, sensible, émouvant, attachant, “Lola et ses frères” est avant tout un film profondément humain.”- Ecran Total

 

“This is a really low key but hilarious comedy about the difficulties of balancing familial relationships. It’s got a great sense of sincerity that cuts away from the maudlin nature of most family-related stories of its kind. Yet it does make you really root for these characters, who are all really likeable and yet aggravating in their own way.” –Daniel Kiniry, Alliance Francaise Cork
