All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (6)

  • It's a commercial movie rather than an art film, but a great deal less compromised than most of its ilk.

  • Sadly it doesn't quite come off, despite interesting moments.

  • Mixed messages forge a forgettable outcome.

  • 'The Adopted' serves as a calling card for Laurent, who displays a flair for character-based humour as well as strong visual direction.

  • Never develops into an engaging portrait of love and loss among a trio of thirty-something Frenchies.

    November 25, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Has all the hallmarks of a trying-too-hard-to-be-playful indie: freeze frames of characters posing glumly in playgrounds, slo-mo hospital sequences, along with a few too many close ups and cute kiddie scenes.

Audience Reviews for The Adopted (Les adoptés)

  • Apr 30, 2012
    Current French Belle Du Jour Melanie Laurent makes her directorial debut with this turgid melodrama. It has more in common with those awful English indie dramas of the noughties than contemporary French cinema. A highly unlikable bunch of Parisians with fantasy bohemian careers mope around while one of them lies in a coma. You'll be wishing for the plug to be pulled yourself.
