“..what you hope for is not even close to what you get, and in this case we are left with a heartbreaking disappointment of a film..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..unshowy, imparting period flavor without overwhelming what is, ultimately, an underwhelming film..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2 of 5

“..this is one of those movies that never feels grounded in reality. You never sense any chemistry between the leads..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..the film doesn't end with a happily-ever-after fadeout but a tougher, emotionally satisfying resolution..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
0.5 of 4

“..like hell. The movie feels like a life sentence..”

“..it's the feel-bad film of the summer and an almost perfect example of how not to turn a book into a movie..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
Review rate : C-

“..in One Day, the words - many of them taken directly from the book - are never convincing..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 4

“..a frustrating film, never light enough on its feet to be cute, never heartfelt enough to achieve "You had me at 'Hello'"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..a beautiful movie, but beautiful in a way that life often is, not movies. Nothing is sudden or easy, either for the characters or for the audience, and there are no thunderbolts from the blue..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
