100
A grand, dark, grave, severe piece of first-rate cinema.

Celebrates a larger-than-life heroism that is, sadly, all too rare.

Has its sluggish stretches, but the superb level of acting is more than ample compensation.

Leconte's signature on the film alone makes it worth seeing.
80
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."
