* Auteur factor: 10/10. Roman Polanski, love him or hate him, is a bit of a living legend, though recent outings have not been universally loved.
* Festival factor: 5/10. Another NYFF exclusive.
* Hype: 8/10. More than a French Cannes winner that Upper West Side people will begrudgingly see, less than The Social Network.
* Total: 23/30 NYFF points.
