All the French food (movies) tastes the same. You either love them or hate them.

There is no nuance to this film. One party is all good, the other all bad, and we are told nothing about how they got there, either individually or together.

One party is all good, the other all bad, and we are told nothing about how they got there, either individually or together. If we are to ponder how the French legal system handles cases like this, and if reforms are needed, we are offered no clue. The judge's decision is on the side of a phone conversation we don't get to hear. There is a subplot dealing with a pregnancy that is dropped completely. The party sequence is largely confounding; are the key characters bothered, disturbed, concerned, or just partying. Who knows? I watched this right after Marriage Story, which is far superior, with the depth I expected to see similarly here. Expand

Extremely well written dialogue and delivered perfectly by actors. some neat camerawork. Very 'edge of the seat' last 15 minutes. Some loose ends but didn't really affect the viewing. chooke me in some reasons

A well-made film, tight and intense. The theme is somehow ordinary and predictable. Execution of acting and film-making is excellent. The boy actor is a stand-out.

Remember that shocking feeling when Hoffman threw a glass at wall in Kramer vs. Kramer ? Triple it and that is CUSTODY. Captivating, a suspense full of human nature hence it is so menacing.
