Emanuel Levy

Chereau's first English-speaking feature, based on Hanif Kureishi's stories, is a bold, full-frontal (literally) exploration of the mysteries of male and female sexual desire. As such, the audacious film will divide film critics and get NC-17 rating

Pulsates with desperate, miserable passion.

Film Threat

It's ironic that a film exploring the mysteries of how people succeed and fail to connect with each other then fails to really connect with its audience.

I'm sure Chereau meant this to be a searing portrait of psychic distance, and it certainly is bleak. What it is not, unfortunately, is riveting cinema.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's a brave art film only because of its porno sex scenes, but it is not necessarily a perceptive one.

Planet Sick-Boy

It's a frighteningly realistic look at completely passionless sex, and Fox and Rylance both do a good job of making us uncomfortable as we watch.

There is an interesting story here, but the movie circles it at a distance.

Sacramento News & Review

Rylance and Fox, fine actors, bravely grapple through some astonishingly convincing copulation (did they or didn't they?), and even more bravely struggle with Chereau's unspeakable lines.

For all the sex and vicious psychological game-playing, Chereau's movie is strangely forgettable.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The sexual content diverts attention away from what is some very powerful acting by the film's talented cast.

A film with a few floundering moments that becomes a powerful description of what it means to be intimate.

Its unflinching attitude toward sex is only weakened by the lack of enjoyment that the characters seem to have while actually having sex.

Despite this shortcoming, Intimacy takes us places very few films have, and the central performances are excellent.

Porno for the squatter set.

Its somber ruminations on passion and desire, marriage and aloneness, resonate with unmistakable force.

Gary Thompson
Philadelphia Daily News

The movie is so groundbreaking ... as to be distracting.

Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle

It's never clear ... what, if any, motivation is behind the affair in the first place, or what either participant expects to achieve from their weekly dose of secretive carnality.

Rylance and Fox are equally incendiary and sympathetic in difficult, daring roles.
