The melding of clear-sighted and insurrectionary modes doesn't quite cohere, but the film is still an ambitious effort worthy of its title.
It's a theme that resonates for millions, but the problem with At War isn't its sincerity so much as the way it takes its central ideas for granted.
In Union leader, spokesperson and factory worker Laurent Amédéo, Lindon adds another rivetingly real characterization to his muscular everyman repertoire.
A generally gripping account of workers taking on the man.
Like many wars it's mostly boredom, and arguing, interspersed with short bursts of shocking violence which turn events. People talk to, at and over one another. It takes a while to sink into the ebb and flow of the conversations.
In the end more concerned with the workings of abstract forces than with the experiences of human individuals.
Stephane Brizé returns with a trudging, cacophonous insight into the guts of industrial activism.
The overall directorial style is by the numbers ... Though some scenes build in tension, they take a while to get there.
It's told with a brutal directness that should appeal to anybody sick of the persistent problems of corporate greed.
[Director Stephan] Brizé makes an unfortunate mistake... by not understanding that the workers' struggles belong to everyone and that, in any case, there are leaders, but never martyrs, much less saints. [Full review in Spanish]
All very false, very deceitful and very regrettable. [Full review in Spanish]
It's all about actors doing improv shouting in each other's faces. This is film-making by megaphone.
