      John Russell Taylor Sight & Sound [Eva] is a superlatively glossy and elegant entertainment; one cannot help wondering whether, if it were given the room to aim at something more, it might not well end up as something decidedly less. Feb 11, 2020 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader A decadent period piece and a sadomasochistic view of sexual relations, this singular, resonant, and at times even inspiring mannerist mess is far more interesting than a good many modest successes. Dec 22, 2009 Full Review Variety Staff Variety This is a sleek, mannered look at an affair between a cold, almost psychotic, call girl and a writer, who is a fraught with overtones of masochism. Mar 10, 2009 Full Review Penelope Gilliatt Observer (UK) The use of Venice in the winter is beautiful; so are the sets. There are things to carp about in the film... but the style is strong enough to make animal leaps over the gaps. Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Judith Crist New York Herald Tribune A quintessentially a midadolescence night's dream of how the arty-smarty set must live and love and suffer. Aug 15, 2022 Full Review Fernando F. Croce CinePassion A watershed work, a furious whirlwind vision Feb 5, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Did Losey fave Stanley Baker (doing his best Richard Burton impression) really think he was going to sleep with a Jeanne Moreau in her Jules et Jim pomp while wearing ugg boots?! He must have been as mad as this movie. The 60's were great if you were an aristocrat and here Joseph Losey sculpts his Dolce Vita in the mentalism in Venice and Rome. Booze, jazz, dresses, black ties, shit load of drugs, voodoo, Alfas in their natural habitat, staggeringly good his and hers bed-wear, Jeanne taking infinite long baths. Opportunistic, irresponsible, dripping in sex and Virna Lisi in your bed reading TS Eliot naked bar a pair of NHS specs. What's not to like? - What do you like the most Eve? - Money. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member In which Jeanne Moreau uses her elusive vagina and a riding crop to viciously whip her cuckold into submission. A very campy, very stylized, very real portrait of borderline personality disorder. Five stars. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Jeanne Moreau in this movie is a study in feminine power and seduction. The lead, Stanley Baker, was HORRIBLE and ruined the overall effect for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Deliciously seductive and sinister. Moreau dominates! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Jeanne Moreau looks stunning in this Joseph Losey-tribute to her, which makes up in cinematography what it lacks in script. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member JEANNE MOREAU AT HER BEST.........THE DARK SIDE OF LUST, LOVE..... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
