Every emotion is bang-on; every scene unfolds grippingly and naturally; and by the end, these characters feel like people you know.

Top Critic

The film starts of a bit choppy as the transitions between the years are sudden and confusing. This settles down as the story begins to flow and Suzanne's life altering mistakes take hold.

Reeling Reviews

This intelligent, insightful gem presents a series of snapshots of a disintegrating family, blending acute social vision with heartbreaking intimacy, cementing Quillévéré's reputation as one of France's most remarkable young film-makers.

There is beauty, simplicity and mystery in Katell Quillévéré's film Suzanne, about a truck-driver's daughter in France who gets into trouble.

"Too little information!" we protest at first. But we are beguiled into the story as if into a jigsaw puzzle.

It's a stunningly confident piece of filmmaking, which holds on to vital clues about how much time has elapsed, and what's happened, then springs them on us.
