The film's value is in its portrait of Ruth, and her independence as a solo outsider in a vast, uncaring city.

Koechlin, a striking woman with a slim frame, horse mouth, and big turbulent eyes, has screen presence enough to kick along the frequently-stalling psychodrama up to an ending that seems like a tossing up of hands.

Anurag Kashyap's 'That Girl in Yellow Boots' boosts strong performances of characters playing out a gritty script

The film's arc is predictable - not least because Kashyap doesn't show us much of the local city to help us escape from her lurid life.

Flounders into a predictable series of extravagantly well-lit clichés that tend to plague daughter-seeks-daddy narratives.
