"Unsettling and bizarrely humorous, The Clan is the sort of film that ups the ante of any movie that dares open with those dreaded five words: Based on a true story."
- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"Francella and Lanzani are excellent, not only in their charged moments together, but throughout this nervy and provocative picture."
- Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Trapero reveals the ways in which truth can be much stranger, more tragic and confused, than fiction."
- Julia Cooper, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"Argentine powerhouse Pablo Trapero (“Carancho,” “White Elephant”) takes a case so upsetting many refused to believe it was possible and retells it in ghastly detail from the p.o.v. of the perpetrators in The Clan, a muscular, Hollywood-style account of the Puccio fiasco. "
- Peter Debruge, Variety
