Critics Consensus

From the Land of the Moon benefits from striking visuals and strong work from Marion Cotillard, but they're both ultimately overcome by a story that drifts into wan melodrama.

  • Dec 06, 2016
    Marion Cotillard composes her character with enough sensitivity to prevent her from becoming insufferable in her selfishness, managing to make us feel sympathy for a pitiful woman who is in desperate need to surrender to her sexual urges and a love that will consume her.
