    It's so rare these days to see a documentary that aspires to be cinematic that Beyond Hatred may seem at first to be slightly better than it is.
  2. An example of a film whose style doesn’t merely suit its story but amplifies its meanings.
  3. 63
    Meyrou follows the family through the three day trial, the verdict and its aftermath, but the perpetrators remain a mystery.
  4. 60
    It's easy to find fault with the film's maudlin score, overlong static shots devoid of the abstract poetry they infer, and a second half that pursues legal rather than personal ramifications at a trial where cameras aren't allowed. But, following the family's path to closure, we'll forgive.
  5. 60
    Verite docu Beyond Hatred movingly accompanies the family of Francois Chenu, a gay man murdered by three skinheads in 2002, down the road to forgiveness.
