Rançon de la gloire, La

A FILM BY Xavier Beauvois

Beauvois manages to turn it into something big, brash and even quite moving through sheer mastery of the filmmaking tools at his disposal.
-Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
Wry, sentimental and carried with shaggy charm by Benoit Poelvoorde and Roschdy Zem as the lovable crooks, Fame"" should parlay its helmer’s cachet.""
-Guy Lodge, Variety
Xavier Beauvois tire une jolie comédie, doublée d'une fable sociale, dans laquelle il invoque l'esprit bienveillant du père des "Temps modernes".
-Télé 7 jours
Une aventure émouvante et loufoque
