Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Still one of Rohmer's best films."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Delightful art film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"As a canvas for Rohmer's ideas, it's crucial in making them feel as crisply distilled and newly debatable as the day they were aired."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Most challenging - and therefore least accessible - of Rohmer's trademark Moral Tales."
‑ Carol Cling, Las Vegas Review-Journal
"A sophisticated drama that speaks volumes about sexual politics, faith, and the delights of conviviality"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The film is beautifully played, that is, as written, which is almost as if it were music."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"The third (and best) of Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Fables, for which he received his only Oscar nomination."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Droll, graceful, and implacably cutting"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Still fresh, provocative and irresistible."
‑ , Film4
"Eric Rohmer's droll and delicate comedy of language."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"A date movie with a touch of class."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Rohmer is fixated on sex to the point where he had to make six movies about it?"
‑ Christopher Null,
"One of the cerebral master's classics."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
