Maîtresse (Mistress)
For a change, the character portrayed by Gérard Depardieu in Maîtresse is relatively normal; it is the world around him which has gone slightly mad. Looking for a measure of affection and companionship, Olivier (Depardieu) crosses the path of the lovely Ariane (Bulle Ogier). She happens to be a professional dominatrix-and from the evidence we're presented, she's one of the most accomplished of her ilk. How this mismatched (to put it mildly) relationship can possibly work is the core of Maîtresse. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Schroeder's comedy is as wry and dapper as Buñuel's"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"for all its hifalutin subtext about "the hidden" facets of the city, there's not much else to Maîtresse than what readily apparent on its surface."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
