Soft-core cornography.

Entertainment Today

Tawdry, derailed, intellectualized melodrama -- the desperately French equivalent of an early-'90s, straight-to-vid Joan Severance title...

With plenty of girl-on-girl action, this is the movie that photographer David Hamilton would love to make.

I wouldn't entirely dismiss it, but I would be reluctant to say I found too much about it that warmed my heart and appeased my soul.

Shadows on the Wall

Brisseau's filmmaking style is artful and clever ... so it's a pity when he begins to wallow in corny moralising and operatic excesses.

Gets more operatically farcical (most of it unintentionally so) by the minute.

It plays rather like a humorless version of Barbara Stanwyck's tongue-in-cheek classic, Baby Face.

[The movie] collapses under the weight of its own artsiness.

You couldn't nail a particular kind of modern French film better if you tried: explicit sex, bad behavior, and shrieking pretention all in one lumpy shock-the-bourgeoisie package.

A lot of sexy stuff wrapped in an obvious morality tale with some philosophical hooey and clunky symbols thrown in to justify the cheap, but undeniable, thrills.

Culminates in a quasi-philosophical orgy of pretense and trashy would-be kicks that takes its rightful place among the worst movies I have ever seen.

An overheated melodrama that plays like an art-house version of the gloriously awful Wild Orchid.

The movie is limp-loined and lame-brained.

Either a highly erotic art film trading in sex, power and morality, or a trashy porno pretending to be deep. After watching two hours of hot young French women having sex with men, each other and themselves, I have to go with the latter.

Deteriorates into a silly farce that lands somewhere between Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and Guccione's Caligula.

There comes a moment in all truly terrible movies when you sense that you couldn't possibly be co-existing on the same planet as the filmmakers.

For its first half, Secret Things is a tolerably silly lark ... Yet as Christophe's role expands -- and the soundtrack's classical flourishes become more strident -- the film's plausibility plummets.

Secret Things loses that narrative midway through.
