Legrand in his feature debut shows laudable technical ability and discipline.

As in all good movies of this kind, the ordeal of the children is not skimped. They bear the brunt, and the legacy, of the anguish.

Legrand... seems precociously adept at turning the screws of suspense...

"Custody" can be difficult, even wrenching to watch, but it always plays fair with the audience, and the experience, worth every minute expended, is impossible to forget.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

We've all seen these sorts of domestic bogeymen before in any number of Lifetime movies. But rarely are they presented with the matter-of-fact naturalism that Legrand brings to his Venice Silver Lion winner.

Less nuanced than some of its predecessors but far more stressful, it isn't an easy watch -- nor is it meant to be.

Audience Reviews for Custody (Jusqu'à la garde)

I don't like that the daughter's unnecessary subplot doesn't go anywhere, but Denis Ménochet is fantastic here, embodying threat and despair in an anguishing drama that should remind everyone that there is no way to judge a situation fairly when you know only half the story.
