"The scene where she shouts at the artists is amazing. The procession of the worst French men known to the world is also hilarious and horrifying. It really grows into something fantastic in the second half"

"It's like all the softness of his later films has gone off and its all hard edges. Some of the best performances in any of his films, and the small moments all combine to work perfectly - the fragmented ending is especially good. Nobody gets away with anything for the amount of time they need. The boy is particularly devastating - the bridge scene is some of his most heartbreaking stuff. The not so great parts of the movie are all smoothed over by the small moments of beauty. "

"It's too long and lacks some of the bite of his earlier endings, but the performances are so good, and the direction pushes everything really well. "

"So withholding that it's hard to just point at any one thing and say - thats the thing! But all the smaller moments accumulate into a really powerful film. Scene on floor singing is probably 'that moment' tbh"

"Invisibility of children very well explored - completely unsentimental until ending blast - open door and world coming in from the dark onto him very good "

"A very strong ending elevates it. Some of the editing and storytelling techniques are amazing. One of grimmest-funniest ending scenes"

"Watches so well despite running time. The ghost of the priest particularly strong. Every good scene has premonition of bad, vice versa"
