Chicago Reader
You feel it in your nervous system before you get a chance to reflect on its meaning.
88
Boston Globe
The bleakness of Rosetta will not be for all, but it's one of the best films of the year.
80
This kind of film, in its various manifestations recurring through the decades, gives us confidence that cinema can ultimately get to the heart of things.
80
Los Angeles Times
Grabs you by the throat and won't let go.

Time
The purity of Dequenne's performance inspires awe.
75
New York Post
Bleak, demanding stuff, and its hand-held documentary-style photography is harder on the stomach than "The Blair Witch Project."
75
Christian Science Monitor
Carries a strong emotional charge along with its valuable reminder of the suffering that youngsters may undergo when a heedless society overlooks their needs.
70
A psychologically acute profile of one teenaged girl obsessed with leading what she thinks of as normal life.
70
Village Voice
Pummeling, jagged, and extremely well-edited film.
60
A portrait of dispossession so acute that it's caused a few critics to cry, Let her eat cake!
