Time Out says

Featuring Wemba (from Lamy's earlier La Vie est belle) as the lament-singing janitor, this slightly clunking, though well-shot, lift drama sees advertising ace Bohringer caught between floors in an old elevator. He is at turns taunted, neglected or seduced by haughty, recently widowed Lemper in semi-vamp get-up, a possible crazy suicide living in a neighbouring flat. Unconvincing, psychologically or dramatically, this adaptation of a novel by Henri-Frédéric Blanc is neither droll nor satiric enough to get us through the rather obvious mechanics of the sexual role-reversal game play.
