This raw, compelling drama of amour fou is an emotional tour de force for RoŘan.

Narcissistic, skin-deep, cautionary tale about the dangers of middle-aged married women having flings with young men.

The film is dominated by the raw intensity of Rouan's performance.

The French may imbue romantic and sexual turmoil with a bit too much sturm and drang, but at least they examine intimate emotions that Americans nervously avoid.

A hauntingly honest and provocative look at what an all-consuming love can in fact consume.

an unusual film about human sexual relations - both because it's told completely from the woman's perspective and because it shows graphically but always tastefully the heat of passion.

There's never a sense that anything's at stake for Diane; there don't seem to be any dire consequences of her actions.

Weak, superficial, and unconvincing, it turns what could have been a searing experience into a trite, overwrought melodrama.

By the end of the film, we have come to admire Rouan's courage as a performer and a filmmaker, in following Diane's mania as far as it will go.

In the end, pursuit of shallow torrid sex can't fully explain her sketchy motivation for discarding her perfect life, but the tragic overtones are palpable throughout.

Rouan succeeds in showing both the dark and light sides of passion.

Wonderful at bringing out an adage repeated by Diane: 'When you're twenty and love goes wrong, you cry because you think you'll never love anyone again. After 40, you cry because it's far more likely that you never will again.'

As a director, Rouan benefits from some terrific performances, not the least of which is her own.

Rouan's writing, as far as can be judged from subtitles, is pointed and vital. Her performance is superb.
