  • The French director's follow-up to his Oscar-winning silent movie comedy, The Artist, is everything The Artist was not: long, unoriginal and heavy-handed.

  • Young Hadji's silence gives The Search what lasting power it possesses.

  • An immense (two hours and 29 minutes) and gravely serious film tackling the humanitarian disaster of the Second Chechen War of 1999-2000.

  • The Search is a lecture. As laudable as the film is in many ways, I'm glad I'll never have to sit through it again.

  • The Search is a film with sincerity and commitment, and an earnest rejection of the horror of war. But sentimentality is at its core.
