Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A guilty pleasure, this French melodrama could have been called "Saigon, mon amour," a grand, sweeping and sprawling saga about a strong plantation owner (the beautiful Catherine Deneuve)--not unlike Vivien Leigh of Gone With the Wind."

"The tendency of Oscar voters toward visual bombast and style-over-substance filmmaking in the English-language categories also applies in the international competition."

"The concentration instead is on soap opera plotting that gets pretty sappy sometimes, as well as thick, torpid dialogue."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
