- Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

"Melanie Laurent's gorgeous, twisted and confident Breathe is a natural second act to the early moments of Kechiche's time-spanning new classic [Blue is the Warmest Color], applying the same level of care and consideration to the hormonally driven closeness of yet another pair of wild teen girls."
- Kate Erbland, Film School Rejects
SECOND COMING

- Wall St Cheat Sheet
AMOUR FOU

AMOUR FOU

Directed by Jessica Hausner

"Top Ten List for 2014. One of the great films about the nature of love. Brilliantly employs lieder by Mozart and Beethoven - the most telling use of period performance since Straub-Huillet's 1968 CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDELENA BACH."
- James Quandt, Artforum

"A satirical yet sensitive study of the 1811 death pact between poet Heinrich von Kleist and Henriette Vogel. Hausner expertly conveys the claustrophobia and inflexibility of this environment by tightly choreographing her characters through carefully composed, sparsely decorated spaces."
- Film Comment

"Hausner reveals her strongest work yet, a droll, romantic exploration of sorts that manages to expertly blend her unique tone with exquisite digital compositions."
- Nicolas Bell, Ioncinema

- Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"Stations of the Cross belongs among the decade's best films about the lengths one must go to in order to balance strong beliefs with a tolerance toward a secular world that fights against those beliefs."
- Ross Bonaime, Paste Magazine
