"Very glossy, very French voyage into sexual discovery that mingles cliché and elegant posturing with an attempt to broaden the horizons of the sex film."
‑ , Time Out
"One of the classics of soft-core erotic cinema."

‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"All in all, a somewhat tedious but occasionally amusing period romp."
