    Subject

    "In "Le Cri de Tarzan", his first feature film, Thomas Bardinet masters the art of understatement to a classic extent. With evident calm, he films the violence of society and lovers in a comic and optimistic manner. (...) Thomas Bardinet has shot in Scope, and the result is magnificient. (...) He seems to think this quest for pleasure is enough, yet we can sense that his film is the result of much thought and a sum of cultural experiences that have had time to mature and settle in his mind.(...)"
    (Olivier Nicklaus, Les Inrockuptibles)
