Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The first-time filmmaker lacks the stylistic assuredness to put the material over, and the mostly amateurish performances are no help."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A grim, risible downward spiral of pseudo-porn."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Do they have Cinemax in Italy? Because surely that's where this filmy, flimsy fantasy belongs."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

"Giada Colagrande wrote, directed and stars in this atmospheric but baffling drama about a protective, possessive prostitute."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"Overall, it's rather less entertaining than the oh-so-French Secret Things."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
