Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With the clack of spike heels on pavement and the shadow of bare legs through frosted glass, Truffaut evokes the spontaneous sexual spectacle of city life."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"A tribute to American film noir."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A bright, knowing, somewhat too affectionate variation on the sort of bloodless murder mysteries that were as much a staple of Hollywood production schedules in the 1930's and 40's as they were of the lending libraries of that era."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Beyond his obsession for detail and natural cynicism, Truffaut is a true romantic"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Never adds up to much of anything but is always entertaining."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
