  1. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film The Blue Room

  2. msmichel's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Exquisite. Georges Simenon's novel is given a modern spin by screenwriters Stephanie Cleau and director Mathieu Almaric with this exceptionally crafted and plotted script. Information is given minutely as the tightly plotted and succinctly timed script is revealed to perfection. Performances are very good especially Almaric and judge Laurent Poitrenaux. Near Hitchcockian in its execution.

  3. Charlotte Normand's rating of the film The Blue Room

  4. Michael Diers's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Zu Beginn noch sehr rätselhaft, nimmt die Spannung am Ende hin ab. Etwas zu wirr und kurz erzählt, um die komplexen Ereignisse eines fast perfekten Verbrechens verständlich zu erzählen.

  5. AVA's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Etwas flache Geschichte,Trotzdem ein hervorrangender M.Amalric.

  6. Tibulle85's rating of the film The Blue Room

    (Vu sur Arte) Un récit chronologiquement déstructuré est plus souvent le cache-misère d'un script paresseux qu'un choix esthétique percutant. Ici, Amalric parvient à générer de la confusion avec une plotline qui tiendrait pourtant sur un timbre-poste! Et ses essais pour introduire du doute et de l'ambiguïté vis-à-vis de ses personnages sont d'une maladresse folle! Au moins, le calvaire s'achève rapidement (70 min~).

  7. Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Blue Room

    The montage is masterly, especially when visuals and words point to different contexts, complement or contradict one another.

  8. janh24's rating of the film The Blue Room

  9. Rui Oliveira's rating of the film The Blue Room

    It's a good film, but not great. Beautiful cinematography, but too many questions and no answers. That's a bit annoying in a film based on a mystery plot.

  10. Levi Miah's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Beautifully shot and structured but the ending - for such an intricate story to wrap up so suddenly and uneventfully is disappointing.

  11. Mikel A's rating of the film The Blue Room

  12. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Interesting film. Amalric always delivers a great central performance and the inter-locking narrative was directed with flair - some great montage sequences and loved the Bergmann style soundtrack. Ultimately left me slightly cold by the end for some reason. I didn't find his situation emotionally affecting.

  13. Karl Patrick Norberg's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Testament to the extraordinary talent of Mathieu Amalric, who is highly capable both as a director and an actor. The simplicity and straight-forwardness of the plot function well as they are complimented by strong performances and good cinematography. A thriller of a more humble kind - more likely to give insight of human emotions than offer a compelling plot.

  14. jmvalderas's rating of the film The Blue Room

  15. LASHLEY's rating of the film The Blue Room

  16. Superfrog's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Impressive delivery of the angst and the sentiment of imprisonment of the character through the image. Eminently watcheable too if difficult to take in completely in parts. The legal scene, with its confused style reflecting the state of the main character, is good if probably quite a bad representation of justice.

  17. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film The Blue Room

    An acutely painful film, beautiful and uncompromising. Wins no points for subtlety.

  18. T.h. Marvelsteins's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Punches above its weight and tainted especially by a soundtrack that simply doesn't work and characters who are wholly unlikeable. Stick with Chabrol's work which this film tries to ape at times.

  19. Carl Penguin's rating of the film The Blue Room

  20. DanB3000's rating of the film The Blue Room

    I liked the 'Memento' style jumping around in time to reveal what (may have) happened, but for those of us used to US and UK crime dramas, there was not enough revelation or plot twist, and therefore was somewhat unsatisfying. This structure may be more suitable for French tastes? The characters were all very cold and unloveable, so its hard to care what happens to them. However, I do think this is worth watching.

  21. Ankush Samant's rating of the film The Blue Room

  22. Sandro Mussida's rating of the film The Blue Room

    slow and cold, yet capturing story, even if (or just because of) all seems evident and disclosed from the beginning.. loved Stephanie Cleau. Amarlic, great actor and director. stunning cinematography, with a eye to the big old classics

  23. floatingufo's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Great cinematography and stunning shots but is let down by a weak ending.

  24. Thomas's rating of the film The Blue Room

    Effective take on a rather conventional erotic thriller with noirish elements. The tight script and relatively short running time both complement Simenon's economical writing style of his novels.
