Félicité

Critics Consensus

Félicité depicts a culture and a setting unfamiliar to many viewers, but its themes - and Véro Tshanda Beya Mputu's performance - transcend borders.

Critic Reviews for Félicité

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (45) | Rotten (1)

  • The meandering narrative has a lyrical quality consistent with the many musical numbers.

    September 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Think High Noon set in Kinshasa and backed by a Congolese beat.

    January 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A heroic, award-winning central performance from the Congolese actress Véro Tshanda Beya Mputu is reason alone to see this often gripping, occasionally infuriating French-language melodrama.

    November 10, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • Beya ... arrives fully formed here as a figure of enormous dignity and warmth, a pillar of resilience who is nonetheless all-too-humanly susceptible to exhaustion, grief and despair.

    November 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's a film with seriousness and compassion, though a little lengthy and diffuse. Dramatic storm clouds gather and pass overhead without ever quite bursting into rain.

    November 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Urgently expressive in colour and varied in texture, it's a Congolese Mother Courage.

    November 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
