Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Far more fascinating than the romance between Paul Gauthier's and Genevieve Bujold's characters in the 1967 Quebec timepiece Entre la mer et l'eau douce are the insights the film provides into separatism."

"Even though some scenes have inevitably lost emotional currency, Brault's first feature remains a fascinating, boldly authoritative examination of Quebec society in the turbulent interlude between the eras of Maurice Duplessis and Rene Levesque."

‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
