  1. French director Claude Berri's exquisite, methodical Lucie Aubrac is a romantic thriller so tightly drawn it almost leaves one breathless.
  2. This is one not to be missed.
  3. Lucie Aubrac has it all: a tender romance, acute suspense, terrific acting, and a camera style and and score that are beautiful yet understated...a major work, possessing breadth, depth and passion.
  4. No-fat filmmaking aided by Berri's muscular formalism that, here, occasionally assumes the gritty focus of a taut, action thriller.
  5. Stirringly romantic...a gripping period thriller that clicks along without resorting to hyped-up shock effects or gimmicky suspense.
  6. Gorgeous re-creation of another time.

    A very romantic picture.

    If you like a little action with your war movies, or maybe some butt-kicking Resistance types and a Mission: Impossible-like finale, you won't be disappointed.

    It's a love story, though, and all the more poignant for being one that actually survived under such tempestuous circumstances.
  10. Viewers looking for a big, political potboiler will be disappointed: Check your cloak and dagger at the door. But the film does have emotional fire.
  11. Achieves the rare feat of fusing tightly ratcheted suspense with intense romance.
  12. Feels less like history than a bad episode of "Mission: Impossible."
  13. 63
    Has too much docudrama and not enough soul.
