L'ordre et la morale (Rebellion) Reviews

Matt Glasby
Total Film

At a compassion-sapping 136 minutes, it's far too long, and Kassovitz's characterless central turn makes a worthy personal statement veer close to vanity project.

Rebellion contains impressive cinematography and strong dialogue, and Mathieu Kassovitz shines as its director and star.

harrowing and gripping account of a horrifying true story.

Tom Clift

Rebellion walks the line between earnestness and self-righteousness, and in doing so unseats The Hurt Locker as the most affecting war drama of the century so far.

It gets bogged down in detail at times, but there's no mistaking its sense of injustice.

Simon Foster

Kassovitz's examination of the compromises our leaders embrace to further their own slanted view of democracy is both vibrantly intelligent and entertaining.

FILMINK (Australia)

Tense, impressively shot and free of any showy heroics, this is an incisive and affecting look at the way war and politics tragically intersect.

Superbly made in every respect, Rebellion is both a tragic indictment of the French politicians and the army command at the time, as well as a carefully researched document

At the Movies (Australia)

The dialogue tends to be declamatory on occasions, the characters are either black or white, no pun intended, and it's all a little bit earnest and overlong. But nevertheless, this is history at its most fascinating.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

As a director, [Kassovitz] throws some great moves -- a sequence where a gendarme explains how the station was invaded is a kind of 360-degree whirl of memories brought back to life.

It's superbly structured and consistently suspenseful, offering keen insight into a conflict most of us won't even be aware of. Welcome back, Mathieu.

Rebellion is a rare piece of film making, a triumph from a director who has the skill, and the will, to commit his cinema to truth telling without compromise.

The List

Kassovitz deftly negotiates the complexity of what happened but his sympathies clearly lie with the islanders in a politically-charged tale with an approach similar to the work of Costa-Gavras.

It's an absorbing political drama, eloquent and angry.

French actor-filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz (Gothika) takes on a major event in his nation's colonial history with this true action-adventure set on the lush South Pacific island of New Caledonia.

Sporadically exciting French action drama about a 1988 hostage crisis drags more often than it should.

Sydney Morning Herald

There are few French films about France's role in her colonies, almost none set in this part of the world. This one makes some trenchant claims, in a powerfully direct story.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

An intelligent political drama, part thriller, part war movie, and informed by something of the anger against established authority that fuelled La Haine.

Peter Bradshaw

The movie doesn't delve too deeply into the mentality of Legorjus or indeed anyone else, but it's a tense, involving tale of France's forgotten imperial trauma.
