All Critics (33) | Top Critics (12)

Few films have the power to manipulate, engage, play and discombobulate the audience this well.

Jacquot makes a persuasive case for a return to the story, with a scowling, watchful Lea Seydoux in the role of a scheming chambermaid.

June 15, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Worth seeing as another entry in the rise of Léa Seydoux, a star of Gallic charisma if ever I've seen one.

June 15, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The immediate effect Jacquot achieves, with quiet droll and some considerable dread, is bracing.

June 10, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Unfolding elliptically, the new film can feel abrupt and unsatisfying, but it's filled with sharp commentary on class and servitude, and [Seydoux] delivers another extraordinary performance.

June 9, 2016 | Full Review…

Rather than gain speed and power in its final act, as Joseph's design comes into play, the movie stalls.
