Critic Reviews for Custody (Jusqu'à la garde)

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (5)

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

April 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

Top Critic

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.

[Custody] suffers from an all-too-familiar conclusion.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Confidently assembled and acted with impressive precision, this striking debut feature finally doesn't fully convince psychologically but is nonetheless a more than solid calling card for Legrand.

September 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Custody is concerned with the failure of process to discern human need and perversion, and Xavier Legrand rather ironically follows in the footsteps of bureaucracy by reducing people to statistics.
