Audience Reviews for The Measure of a Man

  • Mar 31, 2016
    Vincent Lindon delivers one of the best performances of his career (truly spectacular, and his body language is particularly revealing) in a realistic drama that brings to mind the naturalistic, almost-documentary style of the Dardenne brothers' films and the Romanian New Wave.
    Carlos M Super Reviewer
  • Dec 06, 2015
    Superbly acted authentic film; unfortunately it's just not quite as good as the thematically similar Two Days, One Night.
