Scott Thomas rules the roost if we're looking at inner burn, at the fury that always seems to be snacking on her marrow.

Empire Magazine

A short but insightful exploration of inverse Stockholm syndrome, loneliness and loss.

Observer [UK]

The end is abrupt and not entirely satisfactory, but it's a convincingly performed and constantly intriguing film.

The two leads deliver powerful performances and as their relationship develops, the film asks intelligent questions about loneliness, anger and revenge.

The List

With performers less compelling than Kristin Scott Thomas and Pio Marmaļ, it could have turned out both drab and offensive - but their joint commitment to their flawed, edgy characters creates a fierce momentum.

The result is disappointing, though not as much as the fact that we never see Scott Thomas in juicy roles like this in Britain.

Total Film

At a taut 81 mins, this crisply shot two-hander is further proof of how modern French cinema consistently allows Scott Thomas opportunities to excel in psychologically challenging roles.

Matthew Turner

In Your Hands is an intriguing, emotionally complex drama with a terrific central performance from Kristin Scott Thomas, but it's also frustratingly slow in the middle section and it's difficult to engage with the characters.

Birmingham Post

Despite the downbeat mood, the lack of outdoor life and few chances to meet everyday ordinary people, there's an honesty about Thomas's performance.

Scott Thomas and Marmai are both fine in a film that could almost be a theatrical two-hander but the plot just doesn't hold water.

Peter Bradshaw

In Your Hands showcases of one of this country's most remarkable screen performers, a vividly intelligent presence - but it does not quite work.

Little White Lies

Kristin Scott Thomas impresses, but the third act turns everything to mush.

Siobhan Synnot

The film generates some interest by fragmenting the narrative structure but it's really a potboiler without much heat.

Movie Talk

Psychological thriller In Your Hands finds Kristin Scott Thomas in typically excellent form, but the film itself, a claustrophobic two-hander, doesn't do her justice.
