CRITIC REVIEWS FOR THE KIDNAPPING OF MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ
- Hilarious, full of humor that is understated, wry and dependent on familiarity with interests as wide as Houellebecq's own.-Leroy neiman
- The Houellebecq we see on screen is obviously rooted as much in fiction as in fact, yet what makes his performance so fascinating is the mischievous glee he takes in sending up his own persona.-Jack vettriano
- A divertingly eccentric, often comically absurd movie about a novelist ... who finds something like happiness after being abducted.-Stephen Dalton
