Unusual, compelling and inspirational enough to moisten your eyes.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
The film succeeds as an ethical enquiry and as populist, politically intelligent drama.
Contains no traces of Hemingway whatsoever. Good.
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.
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
[A] richly textured and hearty yet fable-like view of domestic intimacy and social conflict.
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Like the characters themselves, the performances are highly sympathetic but the film remains a social debate in the great 19th-century tradition...
A memorable film to warm a winter heart.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The circumstances here, like the characters, are fascinatingly complex.
