Movie Info

Despite losing his job, Michel lives happily with Marie-Claire. They have been in love for more than thirty years ...Their children and grandchildren delight them... They have plenty of close friends...They are proud of their union and political struggles... Their conscience is as clear as their view of life. This happiness will be shattered along with their French window by two young men, armed and masked, who beat them, tie them up, snatch their wedding rings and flee with their credit



Robert Guediguian, Victor Hugo

The film succeeds as an ethical enquiry and as populist, politically intelligent drama.

[A] richly textured and hearty yet fable-like view of domestic intimacy and social conflict.

Like the characters themselves, the performances are highly sympathetic but the film remains a social debate in the great 19th-century tradition...

Characteristically honest and affecting.

Justice, decency and solidarity sometimes feel like old-fashioned virtues but they lie at the heart of The Snows Of Kilimanjaro.

Deeper than it first appears. And even playing a dullard, Darroussin dazzles.

It's made with a sure and steady hand that never takes shortcuts with its important message.

September 13, 2012 Full Review Source: Guardian

Robert Guédiguian's affecting blend of social grit and domestic tenderness steers clear of sentimentality - just.

This heart-warming and socially conscious French drama is poignantly beautiful with a standout lead performance from director Robert Guediguian's muse, Ariane Ascaride.

Contains no traces of Hemingway whatsoever. Good.

September 9, 2012 Full Review Source: Scotsman

A poignant portrait of marriage and a dramatic chronicle of hardships and justice.

Shot in warm, summery tones, TSOK muses pertinently on justice and forgiveness while painting a moving portrait of an enduring marriage.

Provocative stuff.

Doce e caloroso como seus personagens principais, mas falho como seu jovem bandido.

The original script, inspired by the Victor Hugo poem How Good Are the Poor, hooks the viewer; indifference is impossible.

March 8, 2012 Full Review Source:

Translates perfectly well as a portrait of Boomers who pat themselves on the back for past glories and the reality of a resentful younger demographic on their heels.

The circumstances here, like the characters, are fascinatingly complex.
