Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "Come What May" is ... too pretty of a movie. It is often sentimental and, worse, schematic. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Sep 8, 2016

Rotten: French townsfolk flee invading Nazis, and a father aims to reunite with his son, in Christian Carion's mawkish, one-dimensional WWII drama. – Nick Schager, Variety, Sep 9, 2016

Fresh: A beautiful, poignant and illuminating French film that manages to make a familiar history lesson seem freshly observed. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Sep 8, 2016

Fresh: There's nothing excessively imaginative or distinguished about the film, but it has some of the solid narrative pleasures of a good, old-fashioned Hollywood war epic. – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, Sep 9, 2016
