Dr. Andrew McGregor, French Program at the University of Melbourne has written the following:
Life is a very strange thing is an outstanding resource for educational purposes at tertiary level. The film is of great interest to French Studies colleagues and students as a contemporary snapshot of France’s colonial legacy and its complicated present ... The film is valuable for its cinematic qualities as a film-essay and as an ethnographic study of the social, cultural and political dynamics at play not only in contemporary France but across the post-colonial world.
