Audience Reviews for 10 1/2

A brutal, devastating achievement. 10 1/2 bares the pieces of a social puzzle so impervious, so deep-rooted that even the ones who are most eager to give a helping hand are forced to admit that sometimes, there is nothing left to do but simply be aware and be there for a child in need. Few cinematic themes other than broken childhood have the power to give my lacrimal glands a run for their money, but miserabilism for miserabilism's sake this sure isn't. Grounded by a powerful, uncomprimising directorial hand and two flat-out exceptional performances, 10 1/2 is one of the harshest, most indelebile films of its year.
