FOR A WOMAN
Official Selection - Brussels Film Festival
Official Selection - Santa Barbara Int'l Film Festival
"Luminous! [A] beautifully crafted historical melodrama!""
- Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
"Director Diane Kurys paints an evocative, witty portrait of love, longing, ideology and desolation in post-World War II France. "
- Marci Schmitt, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"This is engrossing stuff, not only in the remarkable details of the parents' lives, but in the psychological nuance with which Kurys imagines them."
- Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
Official Selection - Toronto Int'l Film Festival
"Both subtle and magnetic...Tahar Rahim [is] one of France's finest young actors...[FREE MEN] contributes a worthy and interesting chapter to the tradition of World War II dramas."
- A. O. Scott, The New York Times
"A testament to Rahim's screen presence...Free Men proves that the can't-take-your-eyes-off-him charisma the Franco-Algerian actor displayed in Jacques Audiard's A Prophet was no fluke."
- David Fear, Time Out New York
"[Tahar Rahim] has an undeniable screen presence that recalls a young Robert DeNiro [and] Lonsadale is, like always, a pleasure to watch."
- Jordan Mintzner, The Hollywood Reporter
FULL MOON IN PARIS
"Ranks with the very best of Rohmer. Enlightened self-deception is the system in this tiny universe, and it's invigoratingly comic to behold."
- Vincent Canby, The New York Times
"It's as elegant and incisive a comedy of manners as ever from Rohmer."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out London
"Out of this Lubitschian tangle Rohmer finds Le Beau Mariage in reverse, and couches it in terms of pure rhythm still unappreciated by bookish critics."
Official Selection - Karlovy Vary Int'l Film Festival
"Engrossing...pure poetry in motion!"
- Gary Kramer, Philadelphia Metro
"A constant to-and-fro of aspiration and adversity..."
- Shaun Munro, Film School Rejects
"An engaging tale of quiet desperation..."
- Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

- NOW Magazine
I AM YOURS
"Both thought-provoking and emotional. I cannot wait to see more from [Iram Haq] down the road!"
- The Arts Guild
"Beautifully modulated over a taut 90-odd minutes...audiences remain glued to the screen!"
- The Hollywood Reporter
"It's a brave character and an even braver performance."
- Film School Rejects
Official Selection - BFI London Film Festival
"[A] fascinating study of perseverance in the face of subhuman treatment."
- Boyd Van Hoeij, Variety
"A wonderful and important film! One of the most powerful and immediate films about illegal immigrants (from any country) to yet hit New York screens."

"A heroic central performance! The sincerity of the movie can't be denied."

- Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
"This movie is why we watch foreign films."
- Eric Hanson, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The movie provides a welcome alternative to the stereotypical images of Islam that plague popular culture."
- Marc Mohan, The Oregonian
LINES OF WELLINGTON

- Xan Brooks, The Guardian
"Handsome, generally well acted...and a detailed and smart look at a point in history."
- Oliver Lyttleton, The Playlist
"The grandeur of the production is impressive. Also, it's impossible not to enjoy that bizarre performance from John Malkovich."
- Caitlin Hughes, FilmSchoolRejects
