      Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter Godeau doesn't seem all that bothered with character motivations and backstories. Aug 15, 2016 Full Review Leah Pickett Chicago Reader Their romance is based on a true story that occurred in a Versailles detention center in 2011, yet it rings false because the actors lack chemistry and their individual narratives are nebulous. Aug 15, 2016 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Exarchopoulos has natural charisma, but her character is bland because of this film's outright refusal to talk about her backstory. Rated: 2/5 Jun 16, 2016 Full Review M. Faust The Public (Buffalo) While Exarchopoulos's character is adolescently unfocused, the actress herself is naturally compelling. Sep 22, 2017 Full Review Kevin Harley Total Film Writer/director Pierre Godeau proves hotter on context than character. The result's non-judgemental but emotionally parched. Rated: 3/5 Jan 3, 2017 Full Review Mike McCahill MovieMail Godeau reaches out frantically for material that might give the pair's encounters any measure of dramatic heft.
