      There is such tenderness and gentleness in this film.

      Sharp and warm ... It reaffirms a distinctive cinematic voice who might be going back to his greatest hits, but has brought something new to them.

      It feels at once younger and older, sweeter and more seasoned, than Dolan’s last few films.... [It's] not out to scout new stylistic territory, but confident in the turf it covers, often gorgeously so.

      None of this movie feels amateurish or unmotivated, but virtually everything on the periphery of its main plot manages to detract from what’s going on between Matthias and Maxime.

      The Film Stage

      Matthias & Maxime lacks the raw, blazing energy Dolan can excel at.

      The Hollywood Reporter

      There’s nothing glaringly wrong with the new movie. ... What’s missing is the blazing urgency.
