Critic Reviews for The Adopted (Les adoptés)
It's a commercial movie rather than an art film, but a great deal less compromised than most of its ilk.
The film is harmless, whimsical, a little long-winded: While You Were Sleeping without Sandra Bullock but with extra Gallic chic.
'The Adopted' serves as a calling card for Laurent, who displays a flair for character-based humour as well as strong visual direction.
Mélanie Laurent's sweet but schmaltzy debut establishes her credentials as a capable director, and she does good work with old Inglourious Basterd Menochet, too.
It's glossy but saccharine, hammering home its coming-to-terms-with-life message as Laurent steers the story into contrived tragic waters.
Audience Reviews for The Adopted (Les adoptés)
Current French Belle Du Jour Melanie Laurent makes her directorial debut with this turgid melodrama. It has more in common with those awful English indie dramas of the noughties than contemporary French cinema. A highly unlikable bunch of Parisians with fantasy bohemian careers mope around while one of them lies in a coma. You'll be wishing for the plug to be pulled yourself.More
