For a time in her life, a woman's pregnancy is the most important thing about her. That is the subject of Hideaway.

One of the pleasures of Hideaway (Le Refuge), from François Ozon, an erratic talent of satisfying films like Under the Sand and misfires like 8 Women, is its insistence on ambiguity.

Jay Antani

Ozon masks his lack of sensitivity to the material with his characteristic cerebral detachment and pretense to subtlety.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

Gradually, Ozon and the actors convince us of the reality of this world and persuade us to watch the film on its own, unforced terms. Nothing much is happening, except life.

Sometimes a movie makes a point that's been made before, but makes it so beautifully and so quietly that it feels like you're discovering it for the first time.

Hideaway" is a spellbinding film, and Ozon, who is perhaps best known for the much darker Under the Sand and Swimming Pool ... continues to be an inspiring director of actors.

Surely, Ozon had Rohmer in mind when he co-wrote and directed this lovely film.

It is undeniable that Ozon has an eye for emotion. His low-fi camerawork and pared-down cinematography keep a beautiful realism surrounding his characters.
