Time Out says

A cynically sharpish script about a gold digger (Signoret) who marries a doting riding-master (Blier), leads him a wretched dance while bleeding him dry, then gets hoist with her own petard while looking for another rich sucker. Fussily structured as a complex of flashbacks sometimes covering the same scene from different viewpoints (with Allégret resorting to some irritatingly mannered optical effects to string them together), it's all pretty superficial. But the performances, especially Jane Marken as Signoret's brassily mercenary mother, are superb.
