Rotten Tomatoes Score: 36%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's no denying that this is a single-note film, but it's a note of considerable emotional clout."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"A potent and intriguing cinema of ideas."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"The images lack historical context, Deneuve seems ill-at-ease throughout and the film overall suffers in comparison with last year's Lebanon-set Under The Bombs."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"Sincere and nicely shot, but unengaging."
‑ Robert Hanks, Independent
"An unconventional yet haunting documentary that shines a strange new light on life in modern Lebanon."
‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"The line between worthy and pompous is a tightrope right the way through, and the filmmakers don't have the shoes for it."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"It sounds like nothing happens, and it doesn't, and the strange what's-real-and-what's-planned? atmosphere can annoy somewhat."
‑ Matt Bielby, Filmstar Magazine
"An occasionally flawed but frequently rewarding film that paints an intriguing portrait of war-torn Lebanon."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Not quite a documentary, nor yet entirely fiction, Je Veux Voir is an awkward blend. But it's not nearly as awkward as Catherine Deneuve in the central role."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Whatever the meaning, or lack of meaning, occasionally powerful images sock you between the eyes."
‑ Rob Daniel, Sky Movies
"The idea is misconceived, the execution gets closer and closer to the danger zone of embarrassment."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
