    Terrific French film about that most universal of subjects - work.
  2. Acompelling, cant free drama about clashing class systems and challenged family relationships that's all the more engrossing for its organic, near documentary style.
  3. An extraordinarily absorbing neo-realistic tragedy.

    What could easily have been a dry, didactic film is granted unusual power by Cantet's cast, all of whom seem to innately understand the personal nature of Cantet's subject.
  5. 75
    A valuable, heartbreaking film about the way those resources are plugged into a system, drained of their usefulness and discarded.
  6. A fresh, striking and rewarding piece of work.
  7. 50
    Works so well for the first 40 minutes or so, that when the bottom falls out of it, I felt more than disappointed. I felt betrayed.
