Her two brothers, Joseph, an embittered retired worker, and Armand, the manager of the local restaurant, welcome her.

It's beautifully done. Perfectly balanced. Always compassionate.

Observer (UK)
It's well-meaning and the naturalistic performances are persuasive. But there's a certain rheumatic stiffness to the writing, which treads rather heavily as it negotiates themes that would benefit from a lighter step.

Rory Marsh
Little White Lies
A languorous look at family and modernity that only just manages to give each their due.
