  2. The Accidental Film Club (Paul)'s rating of the film To Mathieu

    A proper, no-messing, genuinely political parable. Firey yet restrained. Very French, one might say. Take the Dardennes Brothers' Two Days, One Night and add a dash of (the beginning of) The Deer Hunter. Delicious.

  3. panagiotatos's rating of the film To Mathieu

    7/10 Benoit is shining in this one, an artfully directed simple story of a working class man's revenge against the capitalist boss, responsible for his father's lay-off and suicide. Nathalie Baye is magnificent too.

  4. Dag Kaszlikowski's rating of the film To Mathieu

    It’s a film about proletariat. How many such films have you seen recently? And even if you’ve had, this one is subtle enough to avoid pedagogy and vulgar morals. But ultimately it’s a picture about brotherhood and life that drags you without breaks till your insignificant death. Watch it to give yourself this reminder.

  5. dionysus67's rating of the film To Mathieu

    A contemporary tribute to Pasolini's "Accatone" starts with an impressive aerial establishinh shot and continues to magnify class relations in a small rural community. The cinematography is elegant, underscoring mood and tension in the domestic and industrial settings. Acted with conviction (Bayle is superb) this is a confident film, which works well as a look on global capital's penetration of the domestic sphere.

  6. Bilouaustria's rating of the film To Mathieu

    A really solid third film for the unpredictable Xavier Beauvois, helped by a good cast and an almost perfect script (except the very end). But the real argument that makes "Selon Matthieu" a special film is the "mise en scène", this attention to stagging and framing, where the images speak for themselves and tell us also a tiny bit more about what's coming next or what's on the character's mind. Precise and clever.

  7. Ankush Samant's rating of the film To Mathieu

    When you scratch life a little bit. A little bit more. And then a little bit more. Then, what you see is an intensely flowing undercurrent that gives life to life itself. This is a movie about that undercurrent!
