Critic Reviews of "Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas"Chicago ReaderJune 05, 2014
The film is almost monotonously somber, though not in a bad way -- when it erupts into violence or settles briefly into moments of intimacy, the shift in tone can be surprising, even invigorating.AV ClubJune 05, 2014
It can be quite powerful on the rare occasions when it allows raw emotion to make its way to the surface.New York TimesMay 29, 2014
The severely beautiful film is painted in a dauntingly austere manner, as if lost in a war against itself, with confrontations underplayed and the rural landscapes making more of an impression than the detoured drama.Los Angeles TimesMay 29, 2014
It's a strong story of lonely, even futile righteousness, which makes the plodding execution by director Arnaud des Pallierès somewhat mystifying.Village VoiceMay 27, 2014
This muted approach robs the film of sorely needed momentum, but offers a rare opportunity for contemplation, a trade-off that only occasionally satisfies.Time OutDecember 17, 2013
Succeeds neither as a decent adaptation of the book nor as a rewarding movie in its own right ... Dullness prevails.NewcityJune 04, 2014
Des Pallières also hears his historical era: the richly detailed sound design, of jostles and clanks and wind, compensates partially for the film's often deliberate pace.We Got This CoveredJune 02, 2014
Beautifully shot, well-acted, and respectful to a fault, Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas is often left inert by its weighty meditations.rec.arts.movies.reviewsMay 30, 2014
Silly critics expected "Braveheart" when it was more like Ingmar Bergman's "Virgin Spring". Ignore the shallow minds; this is a serious art film worthy of your attention if you have an IQ over 80.Movie MezzanineMay 30, 2014
Those seeking bloodletting and savagery will be disappointed... Let it be said that Age of Uprising will test the limits of moviegoers who are not prepared for the deliberate way this revenge tale is handled.Critical WomenMay 30, 2014
Medieval mumblecore. And social conflict as secondary to the scenery in this dramatic momentum-free travelogue, a treat solely for arty snobs and couch potato political dilettantes. Poverty porn as high art, and most memorable, a pregnant horse in labor.Examiner.comMay 29, 2014
Without a character to connect with it all amounts to nothing but a poor man's Braveheart, minus that film's vigorous battle sequences.
