Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At least part of the comic appeal of Mr. Rohmer's work is the complete confidence, clarity and decisiveness with which he dramatizes the utter confusion of his emotionally besieged heroines."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"It's a small work, but nearly perfect."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"A Rohmer film is a flavor that, once tasted, cannot be mistaken."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A difficult film to like."

‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
