Instead of hiding behind the specter of death, the film becomes a call to arms for resistance and hope, almost organic in its construction.

A movie this well observed, this drenched in naturalism, this candid and poignant, can only spring from reality.

Joins Phantom Thread and Loveless as a monumentally good film of 2018 ... Mention must be made of Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, who reminds me of seeing the young, wild-eyed Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon ... outstanding and should not be missed.

It doesn't try to be a comforting film, and it certainly isn't. It's strident, unwieldy and confronting.

As the film moves fluidly between protests, meetings, club nights, and affairs...we are left with the impression of a time and a place in which nothing, not even death, seems inevitable.

The storytelling not only has an immediacy, it matches issues to individuals so that the campaigning is never merely about the public profile.

Campillo's engrossing human rights drama is top drawer foreign-language cinema and a must-see film.

It's a funny, heartbreaking film, a little too long perhaps, but wonderfully evocative of an intense chapter in recent Parisian history.

Rebotini's dissonant, humming, house-inflected score - and the metronome-like heartbeats that underscore the action - are reminders that, even on their deathbed, a person has a pulse. In its dying gasps, the film grasps at life.

There's a poignant undertow to the rush.

There are elements to admire - committed performances and noble intentions - but as cinema it's a non-starter.
