  1. Siniestro's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  2. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    4.6 stars. Impressionistic kitchen sink realism. Puts your mind, body and soul through the wringer. 'Crime and Punishment' from a child's eye view. The clearest experiential explanation of what space and place mean to us as humans and how they can both hurt and enrich us. Beautiful and brutal with a very clear-eyed understanding of the mechanics of poverty and childhood. Read Annette Kuhn's BFI book on the film.

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    This is a powerful film that has some stark images and a lot of harsh reality that feel like a perfect blend of Bunuel's Los Olivadados and Truffaut's 400 Blows but it is all the brilliance of Lynne Ramsay presented on the screen as she crafts a beautifully haunting tale of childhood.

  4. Absentia's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  5. Diego Ravazzolo's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Stunning cinematography, shows very well the wet and cloudy climate that surrounds this low-class neighborhood of Glasgow. A young boy struggling against his very own guilt... heartbreaking stuff.

  10. callum mclaughlin's rating of the film Ratcatcher

    Observing the trapped nature to a rat-infested living scheme, where prosperity is but a pipe dream, 'Ratcatcher' finds the genuine beauty in day-to-day interactions in a truly fantastic film that plays our childhood memories back to us on screen. A wonderful blend of hard-hitting realism and childlike fantasy interwoven. And so it's a shame that the ending, although narratively great, fell a bit flat and felt rushed.

  11. Max Swanson's rating of the film Ratcatcher

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

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

    Always worthy cinematography in a Ramsay flick.

  13. Vincent Balcer's rating of the film Ratcatcher

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

  14. Nachtreich's rating of the film Ratcatcher

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. fada19's rating of the film Ratcatcher

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

  19. 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

  20. 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

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

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.
