  1. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film A Better Life

    A good start, hangovers in the middle section, catching-up towards the end. Very symphatic & believable actors. Interesting story about a young couple which runs into desaster due to naive attitude & lack of experience. But love heals the wounds. Solid.

  2. Tülay Bingöl's rating of the film A Better Life

  3. Güntülü Yılmaz's rating of the film A Better Life

    Esas mesele, yetinmeyi bilmek. Çatışma da buna dair filmde, kocaman hayallere, romantizme yer bırakmayan bir dünyada olduğumuzu hatırlatıyor. Beklentisiz izlenebilir, ben sevdim.

  4. İbrahim Akbaş's rating of the film A Better Life

    Modern dünyanın en orjinal dehşet unsuru: Kredi geri ödemeleri. Gerilimlerden gerilim beğenin.

  5. Bekir Tonga's rating of the film A Better Life

  6. Makinist Klitorist's rating of the film A Better Life

    Cedric'i l'Ennui adlı filminden bu yana takip ediyorum. Daha İyi Bir Hayat ise, bu yönetmenin en güzel ve gerçekçi filmlerinden biri bence. MUBI'deki tanıtımının tersine, bu yapım, sadece bir aile filmi değil. İçinde --hafif de olsa, bir-- kapitalizm eleştirisini barındırıyor. Güzel, mesajını alttan alta veren ve seyretmesi keyifli bir film. Tavsiye ederim.

  7. Amanda A.Costa's rating of the film A Better Life

    beautifull love between Guillaume canet s character and the little boy. A sad story about people who struggle to have a better life, but unfortunately sometimes they dont get what they really need, This is pretty realistic. 3 stars and half

  8. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film A Better Life

    Competent but not brilliant, it works as an alert for the more ambitious, in times of economic crisis. Review and Rating: http://www.alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.pt/2013/06/une-vie-meilleure-better-life-2011.html

  9. msmichel's rating of the film A Better Life

    Another take on the recession blues with this French tale of a budding restauranteer with dreams of success who against advise over-leverages himself in multiple loans to raise the down payment for his own business. His gf relocates temporarily leaving her son with him and a real lesson in modern ethics and economy await him. Not as dire as it sounds but bleak nonetheless. Canet quite good here cast against type.

  10. jhayyy's rating of the film A Better Life

    *** Superbement interprété, à la fois révoltant, dur et drôle.

  11. Garçon Manqué's rating of the film A Better Life

    mubi people can be weird sometimes:this film deserves more than just three stars.

  12. alice's rating of the film A Better Life

    émouvant, réel et impeccablement joué. Un drame bouleversant qui peint,hélas, une société trop actuelle, mais réussi néanmoins à redonner de l'espoir.
