All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

'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.

It's a wispy, tasteful, mildly touching, very French affair.

February 25, 2012 | Full Review…

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

February 24, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

February 23, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film is harmless, whimsical, a little long-winded: While You Were Sleeping without Sandra Bullock but with extra Gallic chic.

Audience Reviews for The Adopted (Les adoptés)

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.
