Never is the material excited into the kind of playful uncertainty that Rivette all but trademarked; the inertness of the performances robs the movie of spirit.
Los Angeles Times:
An elaborate trifle that can be either beguiling or baffling depending on your point of view.
New York Post:
The cast is first-rate, as is the cinematography by Irina Lubtchansky. But the story, co-written by Rivette, is paper-thin and stagy.
Boyd van Hoeij,
Will interest Rivette admirers at fests and in the niche arena but will do nothing to broaden his appeal.
It's all slight enough to blow away, and rare enough to warrant seeing it before it does.
