Review: Joachim Lafosse's 'Our Children' Starring Tahar Rahim

1 August 2013 5:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Some movies you don't exit, you escape. You crawl out from underneath them, they're so heavy and oppressive and immovably huge. "Our Children" is one such weighty mass. But instead of being a transformative, ultimately life-affirming experience, the way similarly bleak "Amour" and "Rust & Bone" are, "Our Children" is full of one-note grimness. Directed by Belgian film director Joachim Lafosse ("Nue Propriété," "Élève libre") there's nothing to be gained from the experience, and it is a grim drag in both content and form. By the time it reaches its semi-shocking conclusion, groans erupted from our audience and the squeaking of hastily exited chairs could be heard. The opening frames of "Our Children" reveal four tiny coffins being loaded into an airplane. They're followed by a shot of Murielle (Emilie Dequenne), who looks all beat up and tells the unseen person at her bedside that she wants the kids to be buried in Morocco. »
