A.O. Scott, New York Times: Marvelous to contemplate and changing slightly every time you see it. Read more

Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out: 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. Read more

John Hartl, Seattle Times: Rivette is 82 now, and his best work may be behind him. Read more

Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader: As precious as it sounds but also irresistibly charming. Read more

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times: An elaborate trifle that can be either beguiling or baffling depending on your point of view. Read more

V.A. Musetto, 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. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: Sometimes a film is simply a story we might have found interesting to live. Read more

Boyd van Hoeij, Variety: Will interest Rivette admirers at fests and in the niche arena but will do nothing to broaden his appeal. Read more

Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice: It's all slight enough to blow away, and rare enough to warrant seeing it before it does. Read more
