Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A mixed-up movie about mixed-up people."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Just another faux-kinky vanity project in which its creator's neuroses are placed on an undeserved pedestal."
‑ Nick Schager, Time Out New York
"Wants to be some sort of non-puritan (queer?) version of Lost in Translation, but its screenplay is too wordy to be able to feign inspired originality."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"The lovebirds' dialogue has the sophistication of a junior high school romance, and Mr. Schaeffer appears to have pasted his story together from the button-pushing plotlines of other films."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Another sanctimonious dose of talk-therapy cinema."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"A remarkably honest and sometimes rather grim look at the dark side of love and sex."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Like his unlucky-in-love characters, prolific filmmaker Eric Schaeffer keeps trying, to little avail."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Drama about a failed and depressed 'Ugly American' New York writer attempting some kind of regeneration in Paris follows its 'hero' into degeneracy."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
