  2. -REM-'s rating of the film Standing Tall

  3. José Neves's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Do we really need Arvo Pärt and a collection of sensitive lyrical inspirational music to add meaning to a movie that pretend to be educational and representative? A film that is fair to its fair actors, and that's all.

  4. bernardovazdecastro's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Another french movie. After nouvelle vague, in terms of mainstream cinema, there is only two options, the poor or the bourgeois class, but they have one thing in common, both ignore cinema and sacrifice that, focusing the story. So you spend hours seeing people talking and a camera moving around them, but if it was a Romer or Godard dialog, but no, is just a tremendous bla bla full of common places.

  5. B.Frichet's rating of the film Standing Tall

  6. Marie La Grouche's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Poignant de vérité, un travail psychologique très bien mené.

  7. bitterMoo's rating of the film Standing Tall

  8. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Disappointingly, “Standing Tall” can only be cautiously recommended, having the credible performances as its most consistent element. (2.5 stars)

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Standing Tall

    CINEMANIA '15 Rod Paradot is a major find here portraying a volatile teen who has been in and out of court for the past ten years often given into anger and frustration. He is the product of a drug addled mother and a social system designed to help but unable to really make a lasting difference. A hard watch but a worthy one and often exasperating. Strong performances all around including Magimel and Deneuve.

  10. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Standing Tall

    4+. (very) Strong. Rod Paradot is fantastic.

  11. Dzernera's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Too bad these matters have been toyed with too much in contemporary French cinema lately

  12. Jorawantstoeat's rating of the film Standing Tall

    The story provokes compassion but shows quite a naive view of the nature of the society-individual conflict. Seems like the authors want to persuade us that love and forgiveness are the solution to everything. Hard to agree especially judging by the story they tell.

  13. Sophie C.'s rating of the film Standing Tall

    The film works because the main actor is really convincing but the storyline and cinematography are too classical.

  14. Clarisse Lemaitre's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Réaliste, touchant, émouvant, ce nouveau film optimiste d'Emmanuelle Bercot est un bijou du cinéma français trop malmené ces derniers temps. Une merveille, tout simplement. Petit bémol sur Sarah Forestier un peu trop caricaturale au début.

  15. graphieti's rating of the film Standing Tall

    Great ensemble of actors. Sara Forestier tops them all. Disliked the final sequence. But then "I Fink You Freeky" by Die Antwoord is playing in the end titles so who cares.
