"Barker elicits fine performances from all three leads, and well-known French actress Richard's English-language debut is a lovely addition to her extensive body of work."

"While her co-stars all too easily revert to arch mannerisms, the wonderful Richard, best known for her work with Jacques Rivette and Olivier Assayas, can animate even the most bloodless lines."
