"A powerhouse of emotional jolts, freewheeling comedy and socially-minded storytelling. Like a whole season of "the Wire" packed into a single film." The Holliwood Reporter

"Genuinely complex. An absorbing, sprawling narrative, delving into te lives of its tough, compassionate protagonists." Whashington post

"Thrilling. It's as if Maïwenn's taken one of Frederick Wiseman's documentaries and added Sidney Lumet's grit, naturalism, and fireworks." The Boston Globe
