|Lions Gate Films | Release Date: February 23, 2001||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
A grand, dark, grave, severe piece of first-rate cinema.
Leconte's signature on the film alone makes it worth seeing.
For the director, Mr. Leconte, and for the usually volcanic Mr. Auteuil, the quiet, cumulative power of this film is a striking departure from the dazzling energy of their previous collaboration in "Girl on the Bridge."
Has its sluggish stretches, but the superb level of acting is more than ample compensation.
Celebrates a larger-than-life heroism that is, sadly, all too rare.
