'Grand Central' is a French film starring Tahar Rahim ('A Prophet') as Gary (a splendid French name), a man with a criminal past. It can't have been a very successful criminal career - Gary seems to own one set of clothes only - so it's probably just as well he is looking for honest work, which he finds at a nuclear power station. But accidents involving radiation - not to mention starting an affair with the fiancée (Léa Seydoux - 'Blue is the Warmest Colour') of one of his colleagues - mean things will get worse before they get better.

This film nails its gender equality colours firmly to the mast in the love scenes between Rahim and Seydoux: she has to go full-frontal, while he shows no more than you'd see at a family beach. One would think a film directed by a woman (Rebecca Zlotowski, who also co-wrote) would be a bit more equal (either covering her up, or - preferably - stripping him off!) Apart from that I can't say this film excited any strong emotion in me: I didn't enjoy it, but to say I disliked it would be too strong - it was on the screen, I watched it, and when it had finished I got up and left the cinema. I can't even explain why I feel so indifferent to it: definitely a 'so-so' film.
