Peter Rainer FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) The notion of a heroine who is addicted to deception is a powerful psychological element of this film. Sep 7, 2023 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com But the settings are better than credible, as is the acting across the board. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Beatrice Loayza New York Times Directed by Antoine Barraud, the film... cleverly fills out the picture through tiny hints and glances, creating suspense through fresh turns of ambiguity in each scene. Aug 17, 2023 Full Review Manuel Betancourt FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I don't know if it all cohered together... But the leading actress, Virginie Efira, is entrancing in trying to capture this woman's splintered life. Sep 7, 2023 Full Review Lee Jutton Film Inquiry Madeleine Collins proves that Virginie Efira belongs to that elite tier of actresses capable of elevating even the most mediocre material into something watchable, albeit still less than satisfying. Aug 25, 2023 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue Tension simmers beneath the surface of this stylish and sophisticated French thriller that spotlights a multilayered performance by Virginie Efira.

john l Difficult to follow. Plot is over the top, unrealistic. Some critics have said the film is Hitchcockian. Really? Must not have been Alfred, that's for sure. Acting well done. But not suspenseful. If it weren't for the lead actress and her co-stars I would not have lasted to the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/24/23 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 47 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Gosh, this is definitely the crappiest French movie I have seen in the last couple of years. The story is so ridiculous that if the director wouldn't feed all the details tiny bit by bit and back and forth in the timeline you could actually shoot the movie compacted into 15 minutes instead of boring the spectators to death for 100 minutes. What a waste of an excellent actress. 1/10 points. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
