[It] has a more upsetting dimension than most suspense dramas as it's based on a true story, a story that touches on issues still roiling France today.
Knowing the outcome behind the true-life tragedy "24 Days" doesn't diffuse the horror, the tension or the sadness of watching one family's drama unfold day after agonizing day when a son is kidnapped and hope dies.
24 Days takes strength from real-world specifics. But the most powerful thing about the movie is its rejection of omniscience. The crime it reconstructs is beyond understanding.
Sadly, "24 Days" isn't nearly as involving as it should be.
As a suspenseful true crime story, "24 Days" succeeds. As a warning against the ever present dangers of anti-Semitism, it is eloquent and disturbing. It's in combining the two that Arcady mishandles the case.
24 Days is neither subtle nor particularly sophisticated as filmmaking, but its refusal to reduce lived reality to generic tropes is admirable.
As tensely suspenseful as it is shocking.
Suspenseful with moving performances, but suffers from a pedestrian, Hollywood-style screenplay and brisk pacing that doesn't give the film enough room to breathe nor does it trust your patience.
...a powerful family drama that has marked political and social overtones.
A real-life "Taken." Tremendously gripping Paris police procedural.
Told from Ruth's POV, the movie is nonetheless a tense police procedural as we keep company with the Halimi family undergoing confusion, fear, rage, hope and ultimately grief.
A suspenseful and compelling film that's all the more powerful because it doesn't shy away from contemporary anti-Semitism in France.
