The film simmers and builds until it boils over in an explosive climax. And it shows how far people will go just to be able to cling to some semblance of hope.

Adam Graham, Detroit News, 2016-06-17

 

Shooting on actual locations and with a cast of nonprofessional actors, writer-director Jacques Audiard keeps the neorealism pumping until a third act concession to conventionality (and vigilantism) leads it in the direction of Cannon Pictures.

Scott Marks, San Diego Reader, 2016-06-10

 

A Jacques Audiard movie looks deceptively naturalistic, but it's as tightly coiled as a thriller and it hides allegories. Despite a controversial left-hand turn in the final moments, "Dheepan" is no exception.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2016-06-09

 

Like the best fiction, it takes the most incomprehensible stories of our time and makes them hauntingly, inescapably clear.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2016-06-09

 

The living, the dying and the dead populate this superb French thriller balancing gang violence, refugee plight and family drama.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2016-06-09

 

For three-quarters of its running time, "Dheepan" feels like something special.

Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic, 2016-06-02

 

It burrows into the hearts and minds of human beings trying to find a world in which it's possible to have a life worth living.

Michael Ordona, San Francisco Chronicle, 2016-06-01

 

A story of survival, of assimilation - and of alienation.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2016-05-27

 

Further cements Audiard as a singular chronicler of roiling souls desperately navigating a way out of circumstances that threaten to upend them entirely.

Robert Abele, TheWrap, 2016-05-18

 

Complicated lives get tough yet compassionate treatment in Dheepan.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2016-05-13

 

For a while, it's quietly meditative and riveting - worthy of the Palme d'Or it captured last spring in Cannes.

Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail, 2016-05-13

 

Scene by scene, there's a leanness and economy to Audiard's filmmaking that gradually shifts, via dreamlike ellipses and temporal blurs, into a poetically heightened register.

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, 2016-05-12

 

A compelling drama that might have worked even better without the action-thriller shadings. The unknown actors are pitch-perfect.

Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 2016-05-12

 

As a narrative of immigrant life, "Dheepan" moves swiftly, with intriguing twists and turns.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, 2016-05-12

 

Dheepan, for all its flaws, is hard-hitting in ways that count. It has the intimacy of a personal drama but the amplitude of a much larger immigrant odyssey.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2016-05-06

 

It's simply that Dheepan's cultural clashes are richer than its man-vs-thug ones.

David Fear, Rolling Stone, 2016-05-06

 

"Dheepan" is finely-drawn, beautifully shot and acted, featuring complex characters doing their best in no-win situations.

Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com, 2016-05-06

 

For Audiard... rebirth is a mean and messy business. But it's also beautiful.

Jake Coyle, Associated Press, 2016-05-05

 

Mr. Jesuthasan, watchful and diffident behind a scruffy beard and a drooping lock of hair, has the taciturn charisma of a Hollywood gunslinger. And the movie in which he finds himself is, in some ways, a western.

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2016-05-05

 

What started as a piercing drama about refugees, rooted firmly in the ethnic crises that have plagued modern Paris, shifts into a cathartic melee that nearly tips into outright fantasy. One part of the film can't be reconciled with the other.

Scott Tobias, NPR, 2016-05-05
