Intriguing...Depardieu gives his most pleasing performance in some years.
-Mike Goodridge,SCREEN DAILY
A constant pleasure.
-Tim Evans,SKY MOVIES
Mr. Depardieu can still generate some movie-star wattage and pull off the larger-than-life presence of a leading man. He has done it so expertly in Bellamy.
-Martin Tsai,CRITICS NOTEBOOK
Intelligent and well-written.
-Tim Evans,SKY MOVIES
[An] upscale talkfest, which delights in its witty banter and sly references.
