    It’s with the earnest intention of connecting with a wider public that Lafosse has slowly yet strategically been refashioning his filmmaking style toward greater accessibility.

    Peter Debruge, Variety

    Virtuously directed.

    Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

    Bérénice Béjo excels in the role of Marie, with a performance as harrowing during her bouts of silence as it is during the shouting.

    Aurore Engelen, Cineuropa

    Bérénice Bejo delivers an incredible performance in this excruciatingly perceptive divorce drama.
