    A warm, often invigorating and ultimately moving ode to community values.
  3. Although there is real pain and suffering in It All Starts Today, it is too impassioned, too brisk and too embracing of life and human foibles to be depressing.
  4. 75
    Well worth seeing for the terrific performances.
  5. Tavernier's compassionate views and long filmmaking experience shine through this eloquently acted drama.
  6. This is a film about small victories, huge defeats and finding the will to keep fighting.

    A superb performance from Torreton, easily one of the finest actors working in France today.
