Nicely anticipates Villeneuve's 2010 masterpiece, Incendies, another story of forgiveness in a cruel, cold world.

The virtue - and also the limitation - of this movie is that it confronts senselessness and insists on remaining calm and sane.

Polytechnique smartly exposes the spectrum of misogyny without overplaying the connection between the two incidents. Which makes the concluding flash-forward scene all the more disappointing.

Denis Villeneuve's unnerving abstraction of the subject matter daringly relays his view of the human cost of gender warfare.

Villeneuve does a superb job of slowly-but-surely building the tension in the time frame before Lépine begins his assault...

The pure emotion and the truths layered into the film Polytechnique are raw, real and devastating.

The tragic art of Polytechnique isn't what it shows or reveals but rather the contemplation it inspires. There are moments in life when nothing makes sense and sadness descends; this is one of them.

Lensed in black-and-white, the 77-minute film is plenty arty and only arguably constructive in its tasteful fictionalization of a violent tragedy.

Filmed in black and white, the French-language film does not set out to comprehend the crime other than to suggest that the shooter (played with a vacant stare by Maxim Gaudette) was a pathetic loser who chose to blame women for his empty life.

Montreal Film Journal

Almost from beginning to end, we're filled with dread and, I must say, a morbid sense of anticipation.

S'il ne parvient jamais à prouver sa nécessité, Polytechnique s'impose à tout le moins comme une oeuvre cinématographique tout ce qu'il y a de plus pertinente

Polytechnique is a sharply-observed piece of cinema if a simplistic exploration of the gender divide.
