Critic Reviews for The Search

  • 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.

  • Oscar winner Michel Hazanavicius makes a 180-degree shift from the effervescent charms of 'The Artist' with this grueling, lumbering and didactic war picture.

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

  • The Search is what happens when winning awards supersedes making cinema.

  • Trying desperately to be provocative (it's not), the only feeling it leaves you with is indignation that you wasted any time on such an insulting mess.
