Binoche is especially subtle and radiant in another splendid drama from Leconte.

Mr. Leconte seems at last to have anchored his cinematic gifts to a story worth caring about.

The director has concocted a tragedy that actually feels tragic.

New York Daily News
It doesn't get much more romantic than this.

New York Post
Has its sluggish stretches, but the superb level of acting is more than ample compensation.

Christian Science Monitor
Leconte reconfirms his growing importance to French cinema with this precisely crafted, marvelously acted drama, which makes a powerful statement on capital punishment.

Miami Herald
Celebrates a larger-than-life heroism that is, sadly, all too rare.

L.A. Weekly
As stunning to look at as "Girl on the Bridge" or indeed any of his others, but it lacks the distilled intensity — and, surprisingly for Leconte, the wit.
