      Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter The problem is that the more Marchal embellishes things, the less credible his film ultimately becomes, and by the time Antoine's story comes full circle Carbon is mostly running on fumes. Nov 7, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I liked the premise of this film- I'm sure there were several scams involving "Carbon tax scams" (or VAT ) regulations that were (and maybe still being used to avoid paying "value added taxes" by companies that were exceeding carbon emission standards in Europe and other places as well..This film may have embellished the truth somewhat , but it did make for an entertaining French crime flick...I was impressed by the ultra-cool cynical ending as well... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member pure garbage. it's hard to relate to characters and root for them. it had promise at the beginning and went absolutely nowhere. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/21/20 Full Review Audience Member GREAT MOVIE ... based on true events. Benoit Magimel transmits to the audience his inner feelings that motivate him to do what he would not do if financial adversity would not happen to him so he could loose it all. Highly recommended. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review camille l Carbone est un film assez dur à regarder. Comment peut-on assembler un tel amas de clichés en si peu de temps? Au bout de quelques minutes, on a compris à ce qu'on a à faire : un film de gangster aussi vieux jeu que tout bonnement incompétent. Les personnages sont taillés à la serpe : le bon gars poussé au crime, le baron de la pègre, le bon copain, le junkie qui menace de tout faire capoter, la copine qui ne sert qu'à prendre des coups dans la gueule... Il n'y a rien de surprenant durant toute la durée du film et cela pose assez problème, surtout quand les dialogues sont aussi assommants de nullité et la mise en scène pachydermique. C'est dommage, car Marchal s'est associé à un casting plutôt compétent, lui. Michael Youn et Gringe sont très bons à contre-emploi, tandis que Benoit Magimel et Gérard Depardieu se battent avec un texte abominable. Carbone n'est pas un échec total, mais on s'en approche. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An incredible atmosphere ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
