If current American movie audiences showed more of an appetite for this kind of reflective political drama, a stateside remake of this engrossing, disturbingly credible film would seem like a natural.
We are left to rue "This Is Our Land" as an opportunity missed, and to wonder how else the tale could have been told.
This Is Our Land may occasionally try to do too much, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want someone to make an American version of this film and blast it into every multiplex in the country.
The drama is well-paced, and all of the actors are wonderful.
Belvaux has made a gutsy, discomfiting movie about going along to get along, and just how dangerous that impulse can ultimately be.
While too baldly calculated and on-message to rank with Belvaux's best, "Our Land" will see perhaps the strongest returns of his career given the topicality.
The sad transformation of Pauline develops plausibly with the character constantly oscillating before a proud vanity for being chosen and a blind discomfort for the reactions around her decision.
Lucas Belvaux's film about a French town simmering in right-wing hate is a frightening sign of the times.
Throughout the film, Lucas Belvaux sidelines the emotional textures that might complicate all his sermonizing.
This Is Our Land is essential viewing for its damning critiques, even if it is too thematically overblown.
There's not so much a story arc as a mess of ideas that are thrown at the screen; some stick, some don't, which means that This Is Our Land is only ever sporadically interesting.
