    ★★★½

    While most directors seem to have put most of their efforts into creating a captivating opening of their films, in his drama "Ten" Abbas Kiarostami seems to have done the other way around: starts bland and then tightening his grip significantly.

    U: July 22

    ★★★★½

    It features an absolutely heartbreakingly stellar performance by Andrea Berntzen in the lead. Added to that is DP Martin Otterbeck's amazing photo, great writing from Anne Bache-Wiig & Siv Rajendram Eliassen and strong direction from Erik Poppe.

    ★★★★½

    THE WRITING. McDonagh's screenplay is a work of brilliance. Add the ACTING. Powerful, lovely, hilarious McDormand. And Rockwell giving it all: far-out, crazy, disgusting and, against all odds, charmingly loveable.

    ★★★★

    Felicity Jones and young Lewis MacDougall are truly terrific. Liam Neeson is perfect as the voice of the monster and the VFX superb. The English locations make for a great atmosphere. Most importantly the writing from Patrick Ness is strong.
