Critic Reviews for Grand Central
[Grand Central] starts as a piece of gritty social realism and gradually evolves into an old-fashioned romantic melodrama, but Zlotowski maintains such strong control over the material that the change doesn't feel jarring.
The plotting may be contrived but Zlotowski cranks up the tension effectively enough as Rahim has to deal with both the threat of radiation poisoning and the consequences of his illicit affair.
I found it gripping, with an edge of delirium; the locations within the power station are positively Kubrickian; there's a disquieting electronic score and Tahar Rahim gives a very open, generous performance.
Alternately fascinating and frustrating.
Without making a vamp of herself, Seydoux goes from strength to strength, and Rahim is as nervy, reliable, and relatable as ever.
Audience Reviews for Grand Central
Rahim and Seydoux display a great chemistry together in this delicate drama that Zlotowski conducts with a candid approach while knowing well how to inject tension in the scenes at the nuclear plant, although it also builds to a not very satisfying conclusion.
