      Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Desson Thomson Washington Post A picture-book French film that's pretty and trite, rather than edgy and moving. Jul 2, 2004 Full Review Stephen Hunter Washington Post Has the strange clarity of a fable. Jul 2, 2004 Full Review Steve Erickson Gay City News However prosaic the conclusion seems, the film's vision of wide-open space-both physical and mental-cannot be extinguished. Mar 8, 2018 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Andre Techine, maestro of the French New Wave directors, tells a seductively simple story of survival set on the outskirts of German occupied Paris in June of 1940. Rated: B Jun 10, 2009 Full Review Anton Bitel Film4 Strayed proves to be as lost and elusive as its fugitive characters. Jun 15, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Compelling drama with a luminous Beart and Ulliel filled with charisma that ultimately feels somewhat contrived and predictable to the end Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member could not understand language Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Its slow pace makes me bored. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I dont know a hoot about French history. Nevertheless I enjoyed this movie a lot. Although it's a story of a Parisian family running away from war, this is not exactly a period war movie. it deals with the struggles of a family to survive, and the relation between a widowed mother and a young stranger. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Great WWII civilian movie taking place in France! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member i like Odile's children, especially the little girl :) a good play on the contrast between good and evil.
