May 16, 2016
A brilliant dialectical filmmaker, Preminger extracts the last ounce of pathos from the anguish of the mute witness.
August 27, 2013
The final shot is one of the most convincingly grief-stricken in cinema.

Niven and Kerr keenly satirize their onscreen iconographies-the cad and the goody-goody, respectively-but it's Seberg who cuts deepest.

Otto Preminger's formally dazzling 1958 film is an edifice constructed of contrasts.

Script deficiencies and awkward reading -- some lines are spoken as though just that -- have static results.

The flirtation with incest at the centre of this adaptation of Françoise Sagan's novel is tame by modern standards, but the evil scheming of Seberg as the daughter set on separating her father and his mistress is still forceful.

Arguably, this is Preminger's masterpiece.
