"A portrait of the artist as a young tagger. Vandal is a unique cinematic experience...Cisterne is a talent to watch." - The Hollywood Reporter
"A coming of age film and a social drama, Vandal does what good films do: transport the spectator to a little known world — a world of spray paint, nocturnal hideouts, tagging challenges, and illicit escapades." - Cineuropa
"In Cisterne's hands, the French cinema's long and distinguished tradition of portraying the world of the young (Vigo, Truffaut, Clément, Malle) receives a stylish update to the modern times."
"Transfixing...organic, raw and unforced. Ulysse Klotz's sublime score is ethereal." - Veryaware.com
"This earthy French drama strikes a chord... Great casting, a terrific soundtrack, an intense script and a sense of the mystical make this worth the read." - Video TapeWorm
"Terrific." - Trust Movies
