Do not be afraid that it's a French Film, do not be afraid that it's a love movie. It's a film that invites you in with its images and the powerful moral it entails. Do not miss. [Full Review in Spanish]

July 28, 2017
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.
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 21, 2017
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.

July 6, 2017
Cotillard is typically fearless, uningratiating and utterly captivating. Director Nicole Garcia hews close to her actors while maintaining a scrupulous reserve.

If From the Land of the Moon were not in French, and did not star Marion Cotillard, we'd be rolling around in the aisles laughing at it.

May 15, 2016
The ingredients of an old-fashioned romantic weepie are given class and conviction by director Nicole Garcia whose elegant restraint helps to ground the more fanciful elements in some sense of reality.
May 15, 2016
This smoothly told tale is more of a character study than a romance, yet should still draw fans of romance fiction who will particularly appreciate Louis Garrel in the role of the dashing lieutenant Andre Sauvage.
August 23, 2017
A surprise late-picture twist fails to ring true and isn't all that surprising, anyway.
August 17, 2017
The mistakes of From the Land of the Moon are wide-ranging, but they all start with a character who's not worth our time.
