"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."
Winner - Vulcan Award for Technical Achievement - Cannes Film Festival
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

LE BALLON DE ROUGE
LINES OF WELLINGTON
"[An] epic historical pageant! ...this rambunctious, rollicking affair sends its creator off with full military honours."
- 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
"...this film is beautiful in its dappled-sunshine light, and powerful in the story of transformation that it tells. And Rivoire, a deaf French student who had never acted before, makes Marie both fierce and achingly vulnerable. Toward the end, we see her outside as snow gently falls; she reaches out, touching the flakes, rejoicing in something she somehow knows is joy."
- Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times
"Marie's Story is lovely and sweet, sad and uplifting.... it satisfies them nicely with vivid performances, beautiful imagery, and compassionate direction."
- Sean Axmaker, Seattle Weekly
"An assured, emotionally satisfying French offering. Carré...plays her determined character with moving obstinacy and grace."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
