  2. Surrealcinema's rating of the film Divines

    3,5. It that kind of films that you´ve found all the cliches of a Hood film but you are glad you´ve watch it. Acting is pretty good, specially with these two friends. I get mad when a film has potential to be better but cliches ruins it.

  3. melibbyxox's rating of the film Divines

    Un film tellement touchant et poignant. J'ai adoré!

  4. Renton47's rating of the film Divines

    Can only really add to existing testimonies; strong performers, energy and an appallingly miserable ending. Also not sure we needed the beautifying routine, poised not as an act of self-love but instead as weaponised sexuality. I really wanted it to take its wealth-aspirations in a new direction other than the ol' crime don't pay. I don't want to dismiss its otherwise strong visual and character details!

  9. chanandre's rating of the film Divines

    [Netflix] triste. Lovely tension via danse. Money money money is not of value if you ain't got no one to share it with. Keep your friends in the treasure chest and them bullion on the outside.

  13. mpho3's rating of the film Divines

    Basing the girls' friendship on Laurel and Hardy, Benyamina, a former hairdresser and "self-taught" director, cast her sister in the lead as Dounia and matched her with another unknown actress. That kind of confidence is as impressive as the resultant film, which is brash, stylish, and despite an overwrought ending, a thrill to watch. The dance performances added another unexpected but well received element.

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Divines

    I love the actors in this film, and I liked the dancing and there was even one really clever line that made me laugh. The rest of it is a bunch of cliches from every other Hood Movie from the 90's, just with female French gangsters. Watchable. Not very original though.

  16. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film Divines

    Such a gripping protagonist, this is a film that looks and sounds gorgeous - it's sexy and feisty and heartbreaking, bold and political and angry. I have endless praise for this film.

  17. Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film Divines

    Combining The Dardennes' working class sensibilities and von Trier's art of human tragedy, DIVINES might be the best Netflix Original to date. Not to mention that this is also one of the most powerful debut feature ever, coming from Houda Benyamina (remember her name, you may). Oulaya Amamra is a revelation.

  18. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Divines

  19. .Ana.'s rating of the film Divines

    A film that promised me more than it delivered. I couldn't connect to the characters fully nor could I feel the bonds between them as honest or true. Some moments between the girls are excellent but overall I wouldn't recommend it.

  20. OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Divines

    Awesome believable performances full of life and spontaneity from the two leads here set against a backdrop of harsh survivalist reality. I didn't care for the dancer or the dancing strand and I kind of wish they'd gotten away with it instead of the to-be-expected tragedy. 3 stars

  21. Kevin Langhamer's rating of the film Divines

    A very emotional film about friendship and about not letting yourself be defined by where we come from but about where we want to go.

  22. vordven's rating of the film Divines

  23. Tatami's rating of the film Divines

    Similarly to Mustang (2015), I feel this one is slightly overrated due to its subject of study. Oulaya Amamra is good as the lead but everything else feels empty, and failing to make an impact in the end. 2.5/5

  24. msmichel's rating of the film Divines

    One of the year's best. Benyamina's film (a Camera d'or winner) crackles with audacity, topicality and intensity in its tale of a young teen trying to make some cash and a life for herself in a society that limits her potential. The director's sister, Oulaya Amamra, makes an outstanding debut here as Dounia capturing the determination and vitality of her character but also the self doubt and fear of coming of age.
