  1. francisca bacon's rating of the film That Day

    "You are an angel""Why?""Because you've fallen". Ironically, it was the Cherubim order with its blue wings of divine wisdom and named derived from Karibu, the guarding monster of Babylonian palaces & temples, that produced the arch-fallen angel Satan and was later sentimentalized as swarms of chubby putti. Ruiz's world is as densely crowded as the spiritual realm above (in Islam each raindrop has an attendant spirit)

  3. Dada Kubin's rating of the film That Day

    A wonderfully quirky movie about a psychopathic killer and – not to use the word ‘insane’ – a poetically unstable heiress. “That Day” feels like some European detective TV series twisted ad absurdum. There’s a killer that kills everybody (but feels a bit bad about it), the heiress who is at first shocked, then playful, eventually in love, police whose theory of how to catch the loony is original, to say the least.

  6. lou.'s rating of the film That Day

    Quelle beauté! Scénario magnifique, interprétation des acteurs aussi naïf que sublime... je regrette énormément d'avoir raté le film proustien, mais je jure à moi-même, je vais le rattraper très bientôt!

  7. msmichel's rating of the film That Day

    The playfulness and archaic spirit of Raul Ruiz meets the crime thriller in this sometimes fun over-the-top grand guignol. Eventually it becomes a little too precious and wears out its' welcome.

  8. captainfez's rating of the film That Day

    I wish I'd been the one hit with a hammer.

  9. Jason's rating of the film That Day

    CE JOUR-LÀ contains, without giving too much away, some head injuries. The film itself seems to have been conceived and plotted-out in a kind of post-head-injury stupor. It would not then seem too surprising to say, as I am pressed to say, that watching the thing itself involves an experience akin to something normally preceded by a hell of a wallop. And there is holy idiocy here that would make Dostoevsky blush.

  10. dionysus67's rating of the film That Day

    Misty in form and content thriller set in a secluded milieu, this critique of a sterilized Swiss society is, generally speaking, below expectations by the standards of Ruiz's oeuvre. Finely acted as always (Zylberstein is captivating) it loses itself in the meandering narrative structure it chose to adopt and regresses thus into a spineless cinematic experience. Overall good but also rather uninspiring.

  11. Juan Javier's rating of the film That Day

  12. alex's rating of the film That Day

    un capolavoro, non spaventatevi se l'inizio è un pò onirico, guardatelo fino alla fine

  13. panagiotatos's rating of the film That Day

    an insupportable movie, trying to be funny and smart to no avail.

  14. LeoK's rating of the film That Day

    Brillante peli de Raúl Ruiz. Inteligente, sensible, mágica. Para mí, un descubrimiento luminoso. Maravillosas actuaciones de Bernard Giraudeau y Elsa Zylberstein.

  15. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film That Day

    Pas mal, mais si ce n'était pas de Raul RUIZ, personne n'en parlerait.

  16. tangoletal's rating of the film That Day

    Película de genero atravesada por el surrealismo y guiños de humor. Genial!!

  17. mad.lucas's rating of the film That Day

    Very original and with an unexpected ending. I laughed with guilt.

  18. roger's rating of the film That Day

    Entertaining set piece; stylised acting with a dream like logic (Reminded me of Bernard Blier's Buffet Froid somehow)

  20. Adam Whybray's rating of the film That Day

    Sappy in a demented way. Comforting too because God protects the innocent as long as it has a hammer! I did want to see the zoo though.

  21. Anita G's rating of the film That Day

    What a great film on many levels. Was really not expecting anything and have been completely engrossed in it throughout. Clever, funny and unique. Who amongst us is insane and not afraid to show it ?

  22. 'king Harold's rating of the film That Day

    I had know idea what was going on, I am way too stupid for this. I was distracted by the face of the lady and forgot to concentrate on the dialogue and kept losing my way, it looks like it should be good, I was going to watch it again but I ran out of time.

  23. Magic Lantern Alison's rating of the film That Day

    Brilliant! A dark farce, really bizarre, totally original.

  24. DrFirestone's rating of the film That Day

    Beautiful setting. Fantastic cast and acting. This film is a mad, psychotic black comedy. I enjoyed the humour (personally I think it's actually the first French film that I genuinely appreciated as a comedy :) I found the political references confusing, I guess because I never lived in France or Switzerland. Excellent!
