Uruguay Total

Un correcto cuadro de época, entre la comedia picaresca y el drama romántico, con sólo una excusa para verlo: el regreso protagónico de Michelle Pfeiffer.

Movie Metropolis

Frears does a fine job of capturing the look of turn-of-the-century France, as well as the essence of Colette's story.

PopMatters

Clever, charming, and slightly superficial, Cheri is the kind of pert period piece that gets by on a great deal of creative goodwill.

(T)he chemistry of these performers makes it not just believable but almost inevitable: emotionally guarded beauties who inadvertently allow affection into their relationship.

The film is a comedy of manners with a powerful undercurrent of tragedy. Cheri is funny, sad and charming, and the ending may shock you.

Remember Boyle and MacDonald's names: you'll be hearing them a lot when awards season comes around.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The challenge here is to make a film in which the protagonists frequently say one thing and feel another. It's a film which has to work on two levels, and it does.

The Age (Australia)

Stretching out like a cat on the wide screen, Michelle Pfeiffer shows off her durable glamour in the star role of Lea de Lonval, a high-class courtesan in pre-World War I France.

Margaret Pomeranz
At the Movies (Australia)

At the centre of this film is the luminous Pfeiffer who knows only too well the ravages of time in an industry where youth and beauty are so valued.

Herald Sun (Australia)

The intense chemistry between Pfeiffer and Friend is what really elevates Cheri above the sum of its slender parts.

Des Partridge
Courier Mail (Australia)

While it's not likely to be as admired as much as his Dangerous Liaisons, Frears - who is heard as the narrator - has given audiences an elegant treat that's easy to escape into, and there are skilful performances by the entire ensemble.

Times-Picayune

Unlike [Michelle] Pfeiffer, the script for Cheri has a tendency to sag noticeably here and there. She manages to pull the most out of it, however.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The camera's gaze is so steady in the lengthy final shot that we can't help but notice the imperfections in even Pfeiffer's famously lovely aspect, especially when the only noise we hear on the soundtrack is the muffled but ruthless ticking of a clock.

| Original Score: 3/4

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Frears revels in the painted silks and hothouse flowers of the era ... Friend often seems carved from alabaster... Pfeiffer is ... [t]rue to Colette's vision ... alternately steely and pliable, willing to bend yet unable to break.

A story that's as fragile as petals dropping from a flower.

Lacks the precision and control of this same team's randy vicious Dangerous Liaisons but thanks to the lead actors, it stings and lingers

Thanks to a radiant performance from Michelle Pfeiffer, 'Chéri' occasionally overcomes a storyline that never quite develops momentum.

It's the kind of refined, delicate acting Pfeiffer does so well, and it's a further reminder of how much we've missed her since she's been away.
