Andre Techine, maestro of the French New Wave directors, tells a seductively simple story of survival set on the outskirts of German occupied Paris in June of 1940.

Reminiscent of such desert island classics as Swept Away and Lord of the Flies, this film is at heart, a microscopic suspense drama quite independent of the war which brought its unfortunate characters together.

The film provides some sort of closure at the historical point in which conventional WW2 film would only begin.

A psychologically acute study of individuals in extreme circumstances. It is not easily forgotten.

The film is really more about the aftershocks of war, and how they upset the internal balance of its survivors.

Ulliel is brilliant as a lost boy who has grown mad in a world filled with madness. And Beart's portrayal is haunting.

If Bon Voyage ... didn't satiate your desire for films about the Nazi occupation of France in World War II, you're in luck. Another one has washed up on our shores, and it's even better.

War may set the stage for Strayed, but the film's real focus is something much quieter and internal.

The film manages to evoke the uncertainties and terrors of war without subjecting us to the usual battle scenes and unquestioning heroism.

A wartime drama that's more about the drama than about the war - you keep thinking you know where the story's going, but it keeps surprising you by taking a different turn.

With searing images of distressed families of American soldiers killed in Iraq on TV almost daily, Strayed is another poignant reminder of war's innocent victims.

We have little idea where it will turn, and the turn it does take is one we would not expect yet somehow seems totally right.

What's interesting about the reserved, delicate Strayed is that it's satisfied to imply its themes rather than spell them out for us.
