August 11, 2017
Instead of any meaningful exploration of mental illness, the film exploits the affliction of its protagonist for a meandering romantic melodrama with an unconvincing final-act twist.
August 5, 2017
Marion Cotillard is in over her head working to save a tedious screenplay that depends too much on her character alone.

[From the Land of the Moon] makes for a rather tedious exploration of a rebellious and repressed spirit.

A film with the impeccable performance of Àlex Brendemühl and an always stimulating Louis Garrel; Two poles of a misdiagnosed misfortune that finds an academic film therapy. [Full review in Spanish]

Director Nicole Garcia creates a romantic drama that at times falls back on clichés, but also covers new ground with a love-it-or-hate-it unexpected ending.

Another French examination of l'amour fou, this one verging on risibility with its excessive devotion to the excessiveness of its heroine.
July 28, 2017
Cotillard's madwoman contortions cannot pass for innocent adolescent pique, and this exposes the film's fakery...with sidelong references to imperialism and immigration, the film becomes increasingly absurd and indulgent.
July 27, 2017
From the Land of the Moon is an elegantly shot tale of l'amour fou that could be eyeroll-inducing were its leads not so charismatic.
July 25, 2017
The film is so humorless and in love with its own obviousness that it grows laughable.

It isn't all as tawdry as it sounds: in her exquisitely shot film, director Nicole Garcia poses some compelling questions about class and war.
