Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's something fresher in this Merchant-Ivory film about an expatriate family in Paris in the 1970s: It's not as tasteful, stately, and restrained as their other literary adaptations."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Especially heartfelt and truthful."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"A fluidly acted and well-directed film about one family's capacity to adapt to changes with courage and grace."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Has a rich, 'lived-in' texture that gives the narrative a credibility not based merely on its actuality but on the conviction with which it is presented."
‑ Ed Kelleher, Film Journal International
