  • Critic Reviews
    "...Prepare to be jolted by the intensity....The performances are as white hot as the subject matter..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Extremely intelligent....The in-your-face lensing and more formal compositions are used to maximum effect..."

    "...Writer-director Mathieu Kassovitz (Cafe au Lait) mines so much tension and pointed dialogue from a low budget and deceptively simple premise..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today
