Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A decadent period piece and a sadomasochistic view of sexual relations, this singular, resonant, and at times even inspiring mannerist mess is far more interesting than a good many modest successes."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"There's not much wonder that practically everybody who had anything to do with the making of this film was offering excuses and alibis when it opened in Europe in 1962."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Losey's original version is apparently lost in the mists of time, and what remains does not give us much of a clue as to its genius."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Losey puts a political face on both romances and compares them to a cold world bereft of Eden."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"This is a sleek, mannered look at an affair between a cold, almost psychotic, call girl and a writer, who is a fraught with overtones of masochism."
‑ , Variety
"A watershed work, a furious whirlwind vision"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A bleak and overwrought yet powerful drama."
‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"The figures of alienation wandering through an elegant landscape may be familiar from the Antonioni trilogy of the period, but the pessimism, energetic misanthropy and disenchantment with the world are all Losey's own."
‑ , Time Out
"A grim drama springs from an unimpressive story."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This adaptation of a 1945 James Hadley Chase novel moves with serpent grace."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
