  • ★★★½ review by Estácio Basso on Letterboxd

    Uma produção simples, mas extremamente precisa, concisa, com pequenos detalhes banais mas aparentemente necessários para compor um todo que retrata uma realidade pé no chão.

  • ★★★½ review by Chris Hormann on Letterboxd

    The people that work in this nuclear power plant are more accident-prone than in The Simpsons.

    A love triangle amongst the nuclear waste which is brought to life by three wonderful performances from Rahim, Sedoux and particularly Ménochet as the cuckolded fiance/husband.

  • ★★★½ review by Ethan Tucker on Letterboxd

    Trying to play on the theme of Lea Seydoux being really hot and so is a nuclear meltdown but that's probably not even technically correct and in the end the review went all pear-shaped so I more or less gave up.

  • ★★★★ review by Rob Langham on Letterboxd

    With Lea Seydoux and Tahar Rahim as leads, this was always going to be impressive and this drama set in the Rhone-Alps region in high summer in and around a nuclear power station is hugely atmospheric. The star of the show is the power station itself - an utterly fascinating environment and naturally a highly dangerous one - but the workers need the money and Rahim's character is quickly nicknamed 'Cherno' when he starts in the job. Apart from all this, one is reminded of Dennis Pennis's question of Demi Moore - what circumstances would persuade Seydoux to keep her clothes on in a movie?

  • ★★★★ review by on Letterboxd

    Ending on an ambiguous note that suggests a sequel might resemble a 70s Larry Cohen horror, Grand Central might initially leave you cold, but as your mind returns to it in the following days you'll find yourself as contaminated as its hapless protagonist. (Review by Eric Hillis)
