All Critics (47) | Top Critics (5)

A father-son drama for anyone who finds There Will Be Blood too cosy in its depiction of paternal love.

The film may resonate for anyone who's grown up under the unhealthy supervision of a mean bastard. Take that as a sobering recommendation.

Legrand operates in the raw social realist tradition of such auteurs as Maurice Pialat and the Dardenne brothers, stripping away sentimentality in favor of direct, observational filmmaking.
