press
New York Times (11/13/2005) - "Grand Magasin deconstructing L'Office. The banality of cubicle life, viewed in a french movie." Roslyn Sulkas
Liberation (2/19/2005) - "Actions are taken to their logical conclusion that borders at times on the absurd, at times on the comical." Hervé Gauville
Télérama (2/16/2005) - "At any rate, a Grand Magasin show isn’t something that’s told,
but rather savored."
Cathy Blisson and Florence Broizat
La République du Centre (1/19/2005) - "at once inventive, funny and remarkable." Claire Damon
