Critic Reviews for The Great Man

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • The characters are nicely written and performed and writer-director Sarah Leonor demonstrates an assured, literary sense of time passing. Yet the film is constricted by its narrow tonal range; everything unfolds in the same blandly naturalistic register.

  • It takes a woman to make a great film about the all-male bastion of the French Foreign Legion.

    September 3, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Swells of emotion seep in like low-rolling fog and suddenly you are watching a drama about real people wrestling with life blow by blow.

    August 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • This often incisive look at modern identity confusion and redefinition loses its dramatic momentum long before its finale.

    August 4, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The Great Man is enjoyable in part because its characters are well-defined without obviously taking the story in one direction or another.

    February 23, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • It exploits the military aesthetics that lend themselves so well to breath-taking sounds and visuals without fetishizing them as in Claire Denis's Beau Travail.
