Critic Reviews for Down By Love (Éperdument)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

  • Godeau doesn't seem all that bothered with character motivations and backstories.

    August 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Their romance is based on a true story that occurred in a Versailles detention center in 2011, yet it rings false because the actors lack chemistry and their individual narratives are nebulous.

    August 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Exarchopoulos has natural charisma, but her character is bland because of this film's outright refusal to talk about her backstory.

    June 16, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • While Exarchopoulos's character is adolescently unfocused, the actress herself is naturally compelling.

    September 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Writer/director Pierre Godeau proves hotter on context than character. The result's non-judgemental but emotionally parched.

    January 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Godeau reaches out frantically for material that might give the pair's encounters any measure of dramatic heft.
