Reviews:

L’Express (Emmanuelle Cirodde): “Both ‘Schindler’s List’ and ‘The Pianist’ were describing lonesome characters. Rose Bosch chooses to describe ordinary people, particularly children”.

Paris Match (Alain Spira): “The stars in the film are the children, in all their overwhelming authenticity. To film this tragedy, Rose Bosch is both at a reasonable distance, but gives to her film incredible intensity”.

Ouest France: “Impressive, spectacular and gripping.” Jean Reno, Sylvie Testud and Melanie Laurent give performances with a sincerity dictated by the subject itself”.
