About the Movie

Two years after her death in a car crash, the husband and sons of famed photographer Isabelle Reed (Isabelle Huppert) are still trying to cope with their loss. Gene (Gabriel Byrne) struggles as a single parent. Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg), the elder son, has just had a baby of his own and finds the transition from child to parent daunting. The younger son, Conrad (newcomer Devin Druid), is a typical teenager, wearing his alienation as a badge of honor and resisting his father’s attempts to connect. On the occasion of a major retrospective of Isabelle’s work, Jonah returns home to help his father organize her effects. All three men are flooded with memories, and secrets are unearthed—most notably the truth behind the mysterious circumstances of Isabelle’s death. Shifting between past and present, and juxtaposing external reality with privileged glimpses into the interior lives of each of its four major characters, Louder Than Bombs is a stunningly intimate portrait of parents and children and the many things that tear them apart and bring them together.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Less fuse, more detonation might have worked wonders. – David Fear, Rolling Stone, Apr 18, 2016

Fresh: There are moments of almost unspeakable beauty in the film, not the least of which are Isabelle's war zone photographs. Like the movie itself, they dare you to look away but award you deeply for baring witness. – Oliver Jones, New York Observer, Apr 26, 2016

Fresh: As "Louder than Bombs" inches slowly toward its quiet yet resounding conclusion, it raises intriguing questions about that thing that journalists care so deeply about, but that artists know to be a slippery thing: truth. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Apr 21, 2016

Fresh: A note-perfect exploration of death and life and loss. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 5, 2016

Joachim Trier's first American language film is a visually stunning film anchored by amazing performances by Gabriel Byrne, Jesse Eisenberg and Devin Druid. Saw in theaters, and definitely picking up on digital.

What was the truth???

This was a well acted film . Slow but very interesting but parts I just don't get. A lot of truth was exposed but confused about "the truth".

Mostly unimpressive

Too much attention is given to the supposed haunting of the characters by their past. Unbelievable in its protrayal of constant thinking that never happens in reality. For those of us who have gone through these types of circumstances, it seemed pushed and overacted. Sorry, but to me, it was pushed on the audience far too often.
