Refreshing portrait, mostly free of idealism, religion, and stereotypes, of how a troubled, secular young Parisian struggles. . .to change his life. . . [but] seems passive.

It's the kind of serious, thoughtful, yet accessible portrait we see all too little of these days.

Far from being the Promised Land, Israel represents a shaky new beginning in a country Alex barely knows. This smart, sober movie makes you feel the full weight of the challenges he faces.

Wajeman introduces some unexpected elements, which he handles with surprising dexterity considering this is his feature debut.

A character piece should have some sense of a character's who, what and why, right?
