Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film 3 out of 5 stars, writing, "The movie is at its lightest, most charming and most persuasive in the 60s; as it approaches the present, something inescapably preposterous weighs it down, though Honore carries it off with some flair." Sheri Linden of Los Angeles Times wrote, "In the central roles, real-life mother and daughter Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni bring a chemical spark to the onscreen dynamics, and their compelling performances anchor the storys novelistic sprawl, especially when it falters or loses focus." She added, "The story lines are thin, but the melancholy that Honore and his cast tap into is vibrant, particularly in Deneuves portrayal of a woman who has embraced romantic daring and can observe her younger self without regret." Alison Willmore of The A.V. Club gave the film a grade of B, calling it "rambling, messy, but ultimately charming". Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter commented that "Location work everywhere is top notch and the smart decision was made not to turn this into a fashion parade through the decades but rather to go for a timeless look in the clothes, furniture and decor."
