This complex, sophisticated and increasingly suspenseful tale of love and betrayal, intrigue and redemption, is as elegant as its star and its settings.

L.A. Weekly
It's all about having your intelligence -- emotional, spiritual, cerebral -- respected. Garcia does that; Place Vendôme does that.

Chicago Sun-Times
This human level is always there beneath the thriller elements. The screenplay takes care to bring the crime story and the personal histories together, so that even the crossed lines of romance work as plot points, not just sentiment.

Fascinating noir, which will long be remembered for its extraordinary lead performance by Catherine Deneuve.

Chicago Reader
May have some of the trappings of an exotic thriller, but it's basically a character study.

Boston Globe
It's rare that a crime movie achieves such emotional complexity, but this one is smartly layered.

San Francisco Examiner
Overall a well-played chess match of a movie.

In spite of its many flaws, the film never loses its focus on its fascinating central figure.
67
When Deneuve is not onscreen, the film is never denuff.
38
New York Post
Heavy-handed, predictable and almost completely unbelievable.
