    I thought it was going to be trite, because of the events of the initial half hour, but I ended being deeply involved. Because the characters told a convincing story I was slowly drawn in to their strange world. The film unfolds with a beauty of understatement.

    Acaso la más accesible de las cintas que han realizado los hermanos Dardenne pero, de todas maneras, anclada en los mismos temas y en las mismas preocupaciones de siempre. Como de costumbre, los belgas usan de manera magistral las más abruptas elipsis narrativas.

    The film doesn't pack the same cumulative wallop as the brothers' earlier work, but its low-key artistry, immaculate construction and fine performance by relative newcomer Arta Dobroshi should rouse the usual fest acclaim and arthouse interest.

    The Dardennes retain a company of returning players: Jérémie Renier, Fabrizio Rongione, and Olivier Gourmet. Such loyalty is rare and touching.
  3. A stunning study of one desperate woman's conscience.
