Time Out says

Schroeder's classic of underground love sits well alongside the masochistic undertones of Last Tango in Paris. Ogier is the professional maîtresse (or dominatrix) who conducts a straight romance with Depardieu at ground level, but has a dungeon below stairs where she entertains her compliant clients. The trick, of course, is that overground comes to mirror underground, but the whole thing is lent more than a little frisson from the knowledge that some of those clients were real. A wickedly funny fable on the more demanding side of love. CPea.
