Washington Post
Where the film might have found its greater meaning is in the interplay between Sarkozy's public and private lives - an especially fertile ground here, given that wife Cecilia (Florence Pernel) was a key adviser and their very public separation threatened his eventual run for president. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
The film is a vehement drama and a fitfully amusing snark fest set to Nicola Piovani's jaunty circus music. It winds up only half-succeeding at both. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
Even as it takes pleasure in imagining the wheeling and dealing that politicos make when no one is looking, it never offers as much insight into the process by which a president is made as its premise would seem to promise. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
A drama about the dirty business of gaining power, it needs bared fangs - and more bite. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
A smart, involving and strikingly adult drama about Sarkozy's rise to power. Full Review
