"In a class with Ozu's Tokyo Story...."
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"If the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel had been remade by Ingmar Bergman it might have turned out a bit like this...."
- Kevin Maher, The Times
"A moving, rewarding watch...."
- Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Gripping from start to finish.... A chilling, fast-moving study of a Syrian household under siege."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"A concisely-told story that couldn't be more timely... a superbly coordinated cast, largely composed of Syrian refugees - children and young adults included - gel magnificently. Hiam Abbass offers one of her most powerful performances to date...."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
"**** For a film that exists inside such a small setting, 'In Syria" is a big film.... It's remarkably powerful and a strong piece of work from director/writer Philippe Van Leeuw."
- Charliedavid Page, Switch (Australia)
"The loss of childhood innocence and the suffocating despair of adulthood come together in "Jasper Jones," a beautifully composed portrait of life in late-s small-town Australia. Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey?s novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences. Boasting excellent performances by young actors Aaron McGrath, Levi Miller (Pan) and Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), and with Toni Collette in top form as the protagonist?s frustrated mother, this is the best film yet by director Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae). "
- Richard Kuipers, Variety
"It?s compelling as a whodunnit, touching as a coming-of-age story, insightful as a picture of race relations and crafty as a drama about secrets, concealing a few of its own for a final, satisfying reveal."
- Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
"...one of the best and most heartfelt Australian films of the last decade."
- Richard Gray, The Reel Bits
IMBER'S LEFT HAND
"This beautiful film...takes the wind out of you."
- The Boston Globe
"A masterpiece...the eulogizing of the creative force and artistic life of one of America's leading painters- in his own vibrant voice."
- Daniel Kany, Maine Sunday Telegram
"It's heartbreaking watching Imber's condition deteriorate but he finds so much joy in his creations, particularly a series of more than 100 portraits of friends and family. To the credit of director Richard Kane, the movie remains clear-eyed about both Imber and his courageous wife, painter Jill Hoy, even as it celebrates Imber's determination to remain vital until his final days."
- Amy Longsdorf, Courier-Post
"...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
"A discovery at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, IN BETWEEN hails from Israel, and is one of the best recent films to come out of that country, or anywhere for that matter."
- Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"[A] breezy, light-hearted dramedy of girl power..."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"[An] energetic feature debut...compelling...While the entire cast is aces, the three leads, and the chemistry among them, are especially fine..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety
THE PARIS OPERA
"Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"... persuasively acted, elegantly shot in black and white and altogether a handsome prestige period production..."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International
"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography. "
- Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
