Critic Reviews for False Confessions

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (14)

  • This rendition loses something perhaps in substance and style; the beauty and weight of Marivaux's language obviously to the non French-speaker, but also any meta-reflexive commentary that might be gleaned from the film's setting...

    March 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The essential problem is that artifice for artifice's sake loses its fascination when divorced from human emotion or grand stakes.

    August 9, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Onscreen these devices seem stagey and awkward, and the pacing is slow and clunky.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Despite a few playful flourishes, filmmaker Luc Bondy's experiment in artifice never takes flight.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • To the extent that False Confessions does intermittently succeed, it is due almost entirely to [Huppert's] efforts.

    July 14, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite the diurnal setting, several scenes are distractingly overlit, the actors enhaloed by a honey glaze.
