Time Out says
André Téchiné’s 2003 film is modest, sometimes predictable and in many ways utterly conventional, except for the expert way in which he slowly but confidently adds layer upon layer of telling social and psychological detail to build an emotional, authentically gripping thriller-cum-melodrama. The performances are sturdy, and that of Béart excellent, while Agnès Godard’s camera ensures that it never looks less than ravishing. A small movie, then, but very pleasingly intelligent.
