Grand Central (15)

Drama, Romance

Gary, an unskilled young man, lands a job as a decontamination sub-contractor at a nuclear power plant in the lower valley of the Rhone. Read more …

Inducted into the workforce by supervisor Gilles and veteran Toni, Gary discovers that radiation contamination is not just a risk factor but an everyday hazard. At the same time, he begins an illicit affair with Karole, the fiancée of Toni.

The critical consensus

The effort to equate illicit passion with radioactive overheating sometimes reaches dangerous levels of obviousness.

***(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 13/07/2014

Seydoux again offers a frank turn, while Rahim and Ménochet add real class.

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 14/07/2014

A gripping if occasionally overwrought drama radiated by a standout turn from Seydoux.

***(*)(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 14/07/2014

The details of the unique setting of Grand Central prove interesting, but the film itself is dramatically inert in execution.
