  • "Strong central performances and confident handling of an evergreen subject."
  • "But Through the Night is not Dary’s journey to redemption or atonement, nor indeed Aly’s to forgiveness or acceptance [...]. It is more complicated, nuanced, messy and real than that."
  • "An extraordinary debut film."
    La Razón
  • "[The film] must be considered one of the year's best readings on violence in the narrative.”
    La Razón
  • "This paradox — of suffering a crime and then traveling a treacherous path to prove it — makes up the heart of Through the Night."

  • "Delphine Girard has conceived Quitter la nuit as a story of reconstruction, with an element of light.”
    La Libre
  • "Through the Night succeeds in generating suspense and psychological depth, making it a promising start to Girard’s directorial career.”
