Gare Du Nord (2013)

"Watching the France/Quebec co-production Gare du Nord, I thought -- not for the first time in my life as a critic -- that this film would have worked better as a documentary." ‐Montreal Gazette

On My Way (2014)

"Bercot has made a film that kind of jumps all over the place, in terms of mood and pacing, but it's never dull and always original." ‐Montreal Gazette

Good Ol' Freda (2013)

"If you have any interest in Liverpool's most noted hitmakers, go see this film. But just don't expect to find too many revelations about the Fabsters." ‐Montreal Gazette

La Maison du pêcheur (2013)

"If you're going to make a film about the origins of the Front de Libération du Québec cell that kidnapped and murdered Liberal minister Pierre Laporte, you'd better make it a good film." ‐Montreal Gazette

Vic+Flo Saw a Bear (2014)

"It's a phenomenal performance by Robitaille, who's rarely had such a meaty big-screen role, but all the others are quite impressive, too." ‐Montreal Gazette

Jappeloup (2013)

"Eventually you may tire of the endless slow-motion sequences of horses leaping over fences, but even for those of us with little interest in the sport, it's hard not to get wrapped up in the drama." ‐Montreal Gazette

Quatre Soldats (2013)

Voyez comme ils dansent (2011)

"Sadly, the last film from noted French auteur Claude Miller to hit screens here in Quebec is not even remotely one of his best films." ‐Montreal Gazette

1er Amour (2013)

"The frustrating thing about 1er Amour is that it has so much unfulfilled potential. There's the possibility of a really good movie about adolescent obsessions, about unrequited love, about first love." ‐Montreal Gazette

La Cicatrice (2012)

"Some films just come walking right up to you, grab you by the throat and don't let go. La cicatrice (The Scar) is one of those films. And that, in case you're wondering, is a good thing." ‐Montreal Gazette

Pitch (1997)

"In essence, pic is a good 15 -minute TV comedy sketch needlessly stretched to feature length." ‐Variety

The Harpist (2003)

"Initially intrigues with its mix of poetic storytelling, erotic ambience and twisted characters, but the story unravels along the way and will stretch most viewers' patience beyond the breaking point." ‐Variety

Les beaux gosses (The French Kissers) (2009)

"Sattouf captures that strange mix of bravado and shyness that is teenage guy-dom, and the result is both frequently hilarious and, finally, quite touching." ‐Montreal Gazette
Posted Dec 3, 2009

Down to You (2000)

"It's all reasonably pleasant to watch, but Isacsson doesn't seem to know what to do with the story once Al and Imogen fall in love." ‐Variety
Posted Jul 7, 2009

Never Talk to Strangers (1995)

"Reasonably entertaining but largely uninspired." ‐Variety
Posted Mar 26, 2009

Screamers (1996)

"A fun, fast-paced futuristic thriller with enough jolts per frame to keep even the most impatient action fan happy." ‐Variety
Posted Mar 26, 2009

Persepolis (2007)

"A moving adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel about a girl growing up in Iran amid the upheavals of the 1980s and '90s." ‐Montreal Gazette

The Sweet Hereafter (1997)

"Canadian writer-director Atom Egoyan's most ambitious work to date, The Sweet Hereafter is a rich, complex meditation on the impact of a terrible tragedy on a small town." ‐Variety

With a Friend like Harry... (2001)

"Moll masterfully weaves together Hitchcockian thriller elements and brainy comedy to create an original film that's never less than surprising." ‐Variety

Sugar & Spice (2001)

"Quite a smart little film with a surprising satirical edge." ‐Variety
