Our take

Rebecca Zlotowski proved her directorial talent with this beguiling portrait of the lives of workers on a nuclear plant. Léa Seydoux and Tahar Rahim are electrifying as two risk-taking lovers in this lyrical drama, conveying with radioactive vigour the high intensity of such working conditions.
