Time Out

An intriguing set-up spoiled by a clever-clever script, Christophe Beaucarne's migraine-inducing cinematography and performances which are decent, but never gel.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

No film starring Juliette Binoche can be totally negligible, but this comes close.

Lisa Nesselson

Intrigues by virtue of its cast and premise but -- at least for native English-speakers -- is marbled with conceptual clunkiness verging, in places, on laughable.

Philip French
Observer (UK)

It creates no suspense and little conviction.

Peter Bradshaw

Here is a film as rum and tangential as the theories themselves, a pleasingly off-kilter noir that casts Juliette Binoche as a cigarillo-smoking spymistress who lights out for Venice in the first days of September 2001.

Savvy thriller for conspiracy buffs with star performances by Binoche and Turturro.

London Evening Standard

Slick, fitfully effervescent, pre-9/11 thriller aims to inject some cross-cultural poetry into the world of political espionage.
