"A father-son drama for anyone who finds There Will Be Blood too cosy in its depiction of paternal love."
★★★★
-Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"For all its stripped-bare economy and unsentimentality, this is one of the most emotionally devastating cinema experiences of the past year."
★★★★
-Wendy Ide, Observer

"Dispensing with a score and using ambient sound to ratchet up the tension, this is an object lesson in stylistic restraint that only misses its step during the nerve-shredding denouement."
★★★★
-David Parkinson, Empire


When his parents separate, a bitter custody battle results in 11-year-old Julien being shuttled between his fearful mother and abusive father, who uses the boy as a pawn to manipulate his ex-wife.
