Critic Reviews for To the Ends of the World (Les confins du monde)
[jA] deliberate, elliptical and startlingly carnal vision of a rogue French soldier's vengeful heart-of-darkness quest.
This skillfully crafted and superbly shot war movie suffers from some familiar plot mechanics and an overwhelming sense of doom, yet remains a compelling look at a conflict seldom depicted in French cinema.
Like Ulliel's vengeful Robert Tassen, scenes are often terse and laconic, punctuated by grim, graphic violence.
Nicloux displays a gluttonous amount of gratuitous violence that seems to only serve as a sensationalist exercise. [Full Review in Spanish]
This is brave, exciting filmmaking, and a fine amuse bouche to Apocalypse Now's meatier take on the same subject matter.
If we add to this the innocuous presence of Gérard Depardieu's character... and that the staging is, at best... a clumsy and soulless imitation of Apocalypse Now, little remains to be rescued from the final result. [Full review in Spanish]
