This tale of culture clash is by turns downbeat and hilarious.

The best office comedy since Office Space.
One of the screen's most cuttingly funny looks at office life.
... subtly sexual and erotic, despite the fact that every scene takes place in the office and there is not a single overt sexual act or word or gesture or reference.
The film is more ambiguous about its characters' desire than it needs to be.
The delicacy of the film comes from the fine performances, particularly Kaori Tsuji as Fubuki.
Astutely directed by Alain Corneau.
A clean S&M flick which only devotees of mental cruelty are likely to find satisfying. Office Space, Japanese Style!
a bravura performance in a memorable film.
A mindboggling view into the heart of Japan
A shrewd but spiky satire about corporate bureaucracy and Japanese social stratification.
Cool, incisive, funny but also strangely melancholy...connoisseurs of cinematic elegance should find it a brilliant jewel.
Testud, who appears to be fluent in the Japanese language, throws herself into this role and is wickedly funny as she flounders in the perverse environment
A funny if unoriginal look at cultural divides. Sometimes the morals are hammered home too blatantly but overall a warm feeling of genuine likeability eminates from the film. Brilliant performances and some wonderfully scripted scenes make this a fine film, even if the containment within the office place hinders the film in terms of characterisation.
