I found the film's mystery strangely compelling, no doubt helped by Deneuve's radiant presence.

Incomprehensible puzzler.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Elegantly creepy one minute and cheerfully absurdist the next, Genealogies of a Crime is lively and inventive, suggesting that there is more going on here than meets the eye.
