“This clandestine activism haunts the film that patiently shows and listens to the suffering of those who are vulnerable to existence and the exemplary dedication of those who, despite everything, try to alleviate them.” By Olivier De Bruyn (Marianne)

1 in tie: A family – 4/5

2nd: A family – 3.6/5

“A Family is a powerful film, sometimes difficult but also luminous. It must be seen.” By AEH
