"Both subtle and magnetic...Tahar Rahim [is] one of France's finest young actors...[FREE MEN] contributes a worthy and interesting chapter to the tradition of World War II dramas." - A. O. Scott, The New York Times

"A testament to Rahim's screen presence...Free Men proves that the can't-take-your-eyes-off-him charisma the Franco-Algerian actor displayed in Jacques Audiard's A Prophet was no fluke." - David Fear, Time Out New York

"[Tahar Rahim] has an undeniable screen presence that recalls a young Robert DeNiro [and] Lonsadale is, like always, a pleasure to watch." - Jordan Mintzner, The Hollywood Reporter
