Critics reviews

There is almost constant, often sublime talk, with extremely sharp inside-baseball of French politics and literature—in addition to subtitles, the print should have footnotes—yet the film is never static, stagy, or script-bound.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Last Mitterrand

    Dans un genre hautement périlleux, le documentaire fictionnel Guédiguian parvient peu à peu à captiver son spectateur, d'abord fort sceptique quant au sujet et à son traitement, et qui finit par adhérer à la démarche, grâce à la stupéfiante interprétation de Bouquet, époustouflant de maîtrise et d'évidente identification. De plus, on évite habilement l'ennuyeuse et fallacieuse l'hagiographie. www.cinefiches.com
