Critic Reviews for Sarah préfère la course (Sarah Would Rather Run)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • Sarah may prefer to run, but she doesn't get anywhere particularly notable in this determinedly flat character study.

  • Although the concept is intriguing on paper, this tragic-comic tale of a track star's arduous sexual awakening feels too thin both narratively and cinematically, struggling with a belabored storyline as it heads towards the final lap.

    May 23, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Although the charcater study doesn't necessarily break new ground, the film's overall crisp construction and Desmarais' spot-on performance keep things apace.

    August 7, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film, frustratingly and a bit offensively, falls very much in line with the "Asperger's chic" that is plaguing art houses and festivals worldwide.

    November 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • What makes Sarah Prefers to Run so touching is that we're not quite sure what the resolution will be for Sarah. She isn't, either. But she just keeps running.

    May 29, 2013 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • A heartfelt, understated and sublimely-acted drama about late-blossoming sexuality.

    May 25, 2013 | Rating: B | Full Review…
