Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It rips into the nuclear family without any mercy, and in such a pitiless fashion like the way Chabrol operates."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Explores the subterranean emotions which can keep a family together or tear them apart"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
