Pauline Kael New Yorker Attempting to achieve an objective version of Kleist's style, Rohmer gives us the surface -- a quaintly amusing account of a woman whole idealism is betrayed. Dec 5, 2023 Full Review Elliott Stein Film Comment Magazine This picture, all gussied up into stage tableaux, looks like a Goethe House Gala performed in Bloomingdale's Show Rooms. Rated: 1/4 Apr 10, 2018 Full Review David Ehrlich Time Out This minor Rohmer may not have much to offer beyond the clarity of its perspective (and the soft beauty of Nestor Almendros's delicate cinematography), but its message will only grow more urgent in time. Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2015 Full Review Thom Willenbecher Gay Community News (Boston) All in all, the Marquise of O imparts a subtle but thoroughgoing feminism, both in its mode of presentation and in its intellectual content. Aug 19, 2022 Full Review Nicholas Bell Exquisitely photographed and exceptionally acted (particularly from Edith Clever as the title character), it's an exceptional title from one of cinema's masters. Rated: 4/5 Oct 20, 2020 Full Review Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) Éric Rohmer... shows us how to create, with talent and sensibility, knowledge and grace, a small masterpiece.

Audience Member Rohmer's chamber piece certainly isn't anything exciting or overtly engaging, but it's a fine piece of period melodrama and often a funny one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member just OK costume drama Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member a bit plodding in places, but rewarding if your patient Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A very charming and warm movie that will touch the hearts of every individual. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This film will test your patience from beginning to end. It was neither surprising nor satisfying. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Si l'histoire était prometteuse, l'exécution fait froncer les sourcils. Théâtre, roman? Quelle allure le tout voulait-il avoir? C'est exagéré, trop théâtral et l'intérêt en prend un coup.. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
