Critic Reviews for The Insult (L'insulte)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Working its way through courtroom arguments, the movie never transcends the main tension established early on, but Doueiri does a competent job of exploring the sources of anger on both sides without valorizing either of them.

How Joelle Touma's script progresses is heavy-handed in its desire to augment the tensions and provide justifications, but it's still powerful nonetheless.

The film can't be faulted for its attempt to argue for some kind of humane kinship and reconciliation, even if this attempt ends up dissolving the enmity in a sentimentality that, given what has come before, strains credibility.
