In the middle of the Aegean Sea, six men on a luxurious fishing trip decide to play a strange game: Chevalier. In this game, people will be judged, people will be compared, and everything --- yes, everything --- will be a competition. As the game continues, it becomes more and more intense, and more and more perverse.

What are critics saying?


CineVue by Ben Nicholson

This is a brilliantly contained and sublimely ridiculous send-up of competitive male egos from a refreshing female perspective.


The Hollywood Reporter by Boyd van Hoeij

Just like a cubist painting, what happens in the film doesn’t necessarily resemble real life in a narrow documentary sense but instead gives the viewer something else: a chance to consider certain behavior from various sides and on a more abstract level.


Screen International by Dan Fainaru

Less like a drama than a statement, Chevalier’s characters do not grow but diminish. None of Attenberg’s charming insouciance is in evidence here although she never defines any of her victims too precisely, she is blunt and even cruel at times.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

The only certainty is Tsangari has delivered another intriguing and thoroughly original character study, which this time serves as an apt metaphor for Greece's larger problems.


The Film Stage by Ethan Vestby

Chevalier is the kind of one-note, overly conceptual art film that says all it has to say within its first five minutes, but attempts to bury it with broad jabs at easy targets.


Variety by Guy Lodge

That Tsangari resists escalating the conflict, counting on subtle political insinuations to emerge as these perplexing social Olympics wear on, will leave as many viewers enervated as amused, but it’s an expertly executed tease.


Village Voice by Melissa Anderson

Despite the claustrophobic setting and Tsangari's observational style, Chevalier doesn't register as hermetic or coolly condescending; the film feels loose and agile even amid so much capricious rule-making.


The Playlist by Noel Murray

While the game Chevalier keeps evolving into something darker, the movie Chevalier is fairly static. The style’s unchanging throughout, holding to a slow pace and a muted sense of humor.
