Ratings & Reviews

  1. Max Swanson's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Brilliant, lyrical, heart-shattering filmmaking and one of the best feature debuts in modern film history.

  2. Trailblazer, LLC.'s rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Always worthy cinematography in a Ramsay flick.

  3. Vincent Balcer's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Très particulier. Un film difficile et pas forcément plaisant à regarder mais dont on se souvient.

  4. Nachtreich's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  5. MistaRichard's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    At this point it's not even about wanting more films from Lynne Ramsay; I NEED THEM. Watched this one after seeing it mentioned time and time again by Barry Jenkins. I had to see what it was all about: and it is BEAUTIFUL.

  6. Philippe P. Marchetti's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Had the chance to meet Lynn Ramsey in NY. Not the biggest fan of hers but this one is a must see.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Constat froid et précis, d'une étonnante sobriété visuelle et narrative, sans misérabilisme ostentatoire, qui décrit une enfance en marge, dans un contexte économique et social souvent déplorable qui laisse pourtant la porte entrebâillée à de possibles émancipations d'une misère relationnelle jamais inéluctable ni définitive. www.cinefiches.com

  8. fada19's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Un très beau film , le gamin est merveilleux de justesse .

  9. Braddis's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Film sympa. Par contre, ce sont sans conteste les pires sous-titres français qu'il m'a été donné de lire. Pathé-tique

  10. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Rate it? 5 rats! Girl says "This canal gives me the creeps" The whole film is giving the creeps, so hopeless, depressing. Lynne's horrors show: how many dead, how much ugliness, dirt, lice, rats, piss & stagnant water, for a dream house in the fields at the end. = Le cabinet des horreurs de Lynne: combien de morts, crasse, poux, rats, pisse & eau croupie pour 1 sourire d'enfant à la fin, 1 HLM de rêve dans les champs

  11. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Sacré acteur, ce ptit bonhomme... Sacrément dur, ce ptit film...

  12. Denis Sedgwick's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Un dépouillement complet dans un univers insalubre, misérable et gris. Seul moyen d’échapper au silence qui prive cet enfant de vivre: Faire comme «Snowball », s’attacher à un ballon rempli d’hélium et s’envoler dans le ciel.

  13. Ludovic72's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Dès son premier long métrage, Lynne Ramsay ne faisait pas dans la joyeuseté : sa peinture du Glasgow des années 70 évoque souvent l'œuvre de Ken Loach. Mais le sombre tableau comporte des touches poétiques et fantaisistes inattendues, qui lui apportent un peu d'air. Les moments de joie ou d'échappée acquièrent ainsi, par contraste, une grâce étonnante. De plus, les jeunes acteurs sont d'une justesse remarquable.

  14. Renton47's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Caring for the smallest creatures can be difficult when survival isn't a given. A great number congregate in these tenement houses - dogs, cats, rats, mice, lice and children. Ratcatcher is a fight to find dignity in the mess of garbage and humiliation. Ramsay beautifully photographs the experience of childhood in a manner that's realistic and respectful. Helps that I'm a sucker for this - Meadows, Dardennes etc.

  15. James Roth's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Full of such great moments, little details that linger once the films is over. It is shot beautifully with some of the best sequences I've seen in a long time (the field scene and the rat and balloon scene) It is a heartbreaking and tender portrait of the characters and the harsh world they live in.

  16. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    I struggle with kitchen sink dramas. Some of the people in his film are so unlikeable it can become a frustrating watch. No signs from watching this that Ramsey would go on to make the truly brilliant "We need to talk about Kevin"

  17. SafeStanding's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Captivating from the outset, bleak and dreary in both setting and subject matter, Ramsay paints a vivid picture of the reality of growing up in the tenements as a young and emotionally ignored child. The acting is so real from the entire cast, at times this feels like a documentary. Superb. A must see.

  18. FCC 86's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  19. lepetitjermey's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    unfortunately I did not enjoy this as much as Ramsay's other offerings

  20. James Mackin's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    If you're a kid that kills another kid, and there's garbage everywhere, are you garbage?

  21. TomMackAplin's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  22. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  23. EdieEmm's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    A strong first feature out of the Miserable British Childhood genre, that stays sufficiently away from being Poverty Porn. Occasionally sublime (Snowball flying to the moon!) if not all that profound, Ramsay's photography background makes even the parts I found overly dependent on sentiment very watchable. 3.5

  24. miles's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    very tough and gritty. the toughest steak.
