  • Infused with plenty of documentary-like authenticity, especially in its portrayal of a group of young men trying to exorcise their demons.

  • The unwavering human kindness of "The Prayer" - a film as clean and bracing as the mountain air that surrounds it - sees it through to something truthful.

  • Even though there's nothing spectacular about the story, you're with these damaged characters and the very human struggles they face every step of the way.

    October 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Kahn's gaze is neutral and detached, happily allergic to proselytism, and shines particularly when focusing on the ambiguity of the main character. [Full Review in Spanish]

    June 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Kahn needs to resort to external appointments to mask his lexical poverty. [Full Review in Spanish]

    June 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Director Cédric] Kahn has achieved here his purest, most forceful film. [Full review in Spanish]
