Critic Reviews for Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brûlantes (Water Drops on Burning Rocks)

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (4)

The film is very theatrical and admittedly 'staged,' but always purposefully.

January 1, 2000

Ozon's most controlled film to date has taken a claustrophobic character study... t and turned it into an often sardonic but always absorbing observation of human beings enslaved by their addiction to sex.

Good for Ozon, less so for Fassbinder.

October 10, 2004 | Rating: 4/5

...though it's not exactly good, there's something oddly compelling about the whole thing...

July 27, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Hilarity, tragedy and a bizarre dance number ensue in this well-executed film debut.

March 4, 2003 | Full Review…

It's a film that should satisfy followers of both Fassbinder and Ozon.

Audience Reviews for Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brûlantes (Water Drops on Burning Rocks)

½

As a curious exaggeration of stereotypes, this film may be interesting at a first look, but the many attempts at a dark humor are not funny and only feel awkward and out of place - which can also be said about the surreal tone that makes it all seem sterile and pointless.

This is probably the picture Anne Wheeler wanted to make, but then again she could call this "Better than Chocolate: The Sequel" I dunno... "WDOBR" is a good littel independent picture that focuses on four interesting characters who happen to have a problem dealing with love and betrayle.
