Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite many interesting mise-en-scene moments, the film disappointingly feels as sterile as the family's immaculately clean house."
‑ Andrew Sun, Hollywood Reporter
"It's a bold exercise, an interesting experiment, but a movie it ain't."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A pretentious and utterly grueling practice in artsy fartsy..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"You'll either be reaching for your barf bag (me) or you'll be captivated (Oprah book club members with lifetime subscriptions to True Romance magazine)."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Fantastica Daily
"Art-house director Sally Potter casts a great actress in her canvas."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"The actors are so committed to Potter's vision, they persuade you to go along with them."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Potter's exploration of modern love fractured by cultural differences can be absorbing even if it feels at times like an intellectual exercise."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Sally Potter has achieved a work that sings to us -- sensually, angrily, and beautifully."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Pretentious or artistic? ... a visceral film that is both hypnotic and irritating."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A rich stew of intellectualism and eroticism, sort of like My Dinner With Andre with better sex scenes."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Your taste in movies may not be/ Quite so highbrow or so twee/ But Potter has a lot to say/ About the troubles of our day."
‑ Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic
"For those who accept Potter's premise -- and why not embark on a challenging, enriching experience? -- this is a unique, bold adventure of the soul."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Has its moments of curious pronouncements about the world that have the ring of poetical truths."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Despite the excellence of [Potter's] film craft and the quality of the performances, the movie's gimmicky use of language upstages its humanity."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"...earns its place with its grace notes, its confidence and, above all, its high ambition."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
