  • The performances and camerawork are natural and unrehearsed, to the point where one wishes this had something more to show for itself than expert mimicry and an inharmonious act of violence to send audiences packing.

  • Brizé's bid for political urgency may not be as complete a work in terms of character richness and scope, but it's a worthy companion piece in the effort to make films in a turbulent time that speak the truth about the plagued dignity of everyday people.

  • An exhausting film to watch in the best sense, venting our anger at the dehumanizing forces in society until we are left drained, contemplating our impending challenges with newfound clarity.

  • Ultimately, At War isn't able to offer much more than gradual escalation of intensity. Even before the war is over, it's hard not to withdraw.
