All Critics (96) | Top Critics (23) | Fresh (92) | Rotten (4)

  • Ozon was wise to translate the story into fiction. In their rawness and their sense of intimacy, the family scenes ferret out the emotional truths behind the bald and bitter facts.

    November 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • One is prone to expect excess in a film by François Ozon, [but he] wisely opts to frame the fact-based events as a straightforward crime drama.

    November 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film gathers momentum and shading as it goes.

    November 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "By the Grace of God" begins to spin its wheels, with unnecessary scenes that give color to the events, when we're more interested in the grand movements.

    October 30, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's strong material, and apt to infuse the viewer with righteous ire.

  • Not Ozon's most assured piece of storytelling, but a hard film to shake.
