Consensus: A mesmerizing performance by ingenue Isild Le Besco makes this stylish French drama a taut, compelling escapade.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

Shot in wide-screen, low-grain black and white, this sleek suspense narrative quietly unpacks the delusions and emotional hunger of its upper-class heroine.

Crazy things certainly happen to Lili, but Le Besco drifts through most of the proceedings as though she were following a checklist: long face (done), three-way with lithe Athenians (yup), the occasional suggestion of zombietude (mission accomplished).

Should deliver to that core of filmgoers who respond to anything French, edgy, well-reviewed and well-done.

The film's retro appeal includes black-and-white cinematography and a Truffaut-esque fascination for parallels between the characters' wild flight and filmmaking itself as a wide-eyed, open-ended experience.

Le Besco has an amazingly shaped face that, alone, takes you through most of the movie.

Despite the film's infectious style and the powerful charisma of its leading performers, it doesn't really catch fire.
