Niagara Gazette —
“On My Way,” which is part of the grand re-opening celebration of Buffalo’s restored North Park Theatre, is about sincere people who work hard, try to do good things, and strive to cope with whatever the world throws at them. Bercot, who co-wrote the believable and engaging screenplay with Jerome Tonnerre, is a director who knows exactly when to let the sparkling cast, especially the glorious Deneuve, deliver the emotional highs and lows of her story.
The entertaining movie is about recognizing that aging doesn’t mean being decrepit or having to be put out to pasture. The French respect all of their generations, and “On My Way” is a wonderful tribute to this way of thinking.
