    A wonderful French offering whose jumping-off point is a bullfight. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    An amazingly self-assured movie, it percolates with themes and ideas, all held together by the gift of the bull's parts. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The episodes are uninteresting and the characters one-dimensional. Unlike the multicharacter tapestries of such filmmakers as Robert Altman and Paul Thomas Anderson, the pretentious whole here is ultimately less than the sum of the parts. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    Confidently directed and tightly constructed, Carnage announces the presence of a fresh, powerful directorial mind with each frame. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    It's a treat, nevertheless, to watch the daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni in a rare leading role.

    The film becomes a complex tissue of intersecting lives, but Gleize handles each developing story with amazing ease, and the fabulist touches are the icing on a very tasty cake. show more

    Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle

    Ill-suited to casual viewing. But its challenges are worthwhile, and the gifted Gleize is one to watch. show more
