Critics reviews

The movie’s final scene, with its deliberate nod to the Robert Bresson classic Pickpocket, is a bit disappointing, but nobody could accuse the brothers of Bresson’s lofty detachment. Their achievement here is both formidable and intensely moving: Without resorting to any sort of “Eureka!” moment, they depict, in the most self-interested of hearts, the first intimation that it’s possible to do wrong.
