Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is heartening that Blier at 72, an aging icon from French cinema's glorious heyday, can still undertake such challenging material and deliver a whimsical, immensely watchable, if ultimately flawed, new film."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"The scenario pauses to congratulate itself too often, but Anne Alvaro is superb as Dujardin's anxious and besotted housekeeper."

‑ Jonas Milk, Little White Lies
"Despite the theatrical execution, it's winningly acted, while Blier provides a typically defiant resolution for his transgressive lovers."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"Blier's penchant for deep-black humour allows him to get some funny, nasty jabs in at Charles's self-pitying, petit-bourgeois existence."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
