Critic Reviews for The Search
The French director's follow-up to his Oscar-winning silent movie comedy, The Artist, is everything The Artist was not: long, unoriginal and heavy-handed.
Young Hadji's silence gives The Search what lasting power it possesses.
After winning the Oscar for his glorified trinket The Artist, Hazanavicius throws a spotlight on human rights horrors. His well-intentioned children-in-peril story, set during the second Chechen war, is periodically moving but unwieldy and heavy-handed.
An immense (two hours and 29 minutes) and gravely serious film tackling the humanitarian disaster of the Second Chechen War of 1999-2000.
The Search is a lecture. As laudable as the film is in many ways, I'm glad I'll never have to sit through it again.
