Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Autumn is a nearly perfect satire of the pretentious French thriller. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't know it."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"Hmm, has somebody seen Breathless? I guess so."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"What emerges is imperfect but shows a bravura talent with an engagingly elliptical storytelling style."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"An unsavory pastiche of the familiar and the overdone, flavored with faux-pungent, existential, interminable dialogue."
‑ Saul Austerlitz, Boxoffice Magazine
"A colossal misfire, a tedious film noir wannabe."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Pic overall has the look, depth and emotional impact of a glossy magazine fashion spread."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"I'm not sure this is a parody or not."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"The cast is uniformly effective, from veteran Aumont down to relative newcomer Droukarova, who gives a muted but compelling performance."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"It's hard enough to care about why these people are striking fashion-model poses and shooting at each other without having to think about their poor, bruised inner children."
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"McGee may well have strong films in him, but this one feels pretentious and gassy."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The film looks great, but there's nothing under the high-gloss veneer."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The seamy underbelly of Paris seen through romantic American eyes keeps the noir alive."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
