It's about love, obsession and revenge and Tautou bewitches us from the very first scene
Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)
July 31, 2003
The execution doesn't quite come together, mostly because of an unnecessary "Memento"-like structure, but the film is still a clever look at romantic obsession.

A fascinating premise, but the film isn't quite grouned enough to strike the chords it strives for.

Nothing can prepare you for the twisty -- and twisted -- details the 26-year-old Colombani almost fiendishly brings to her story of misguided love.
| Original Score: 4/4

May 30, 2003
An unsettling and often creepy little thriller, which at first appears to be fairly straightforward but then gets much craftier and considerably more interesting.

Colombani's double-sided view of events works like a jigsaw puzzle, but you may get the chills every time you learn where a new piece connects to an earlier one.

An off-kilter 'romance' with a wicked streak of dark humor.

It's more clever than brilliant, but folding two radically different interpretations of a kind gesture, a chance encounter and a Nat King Cole song heard on a car radio is a great trick.
| Original Score: 4/5

A dazzling diversion with dark undertones.

Forrest Hartman
Reno Gazette-Journal
May 2, 2003
Smacks of the great Hitchcock films in both tone and subject matter.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

A great deal of the fun of the movie has to do with the casting of Tatou in a role that is more complicated than her heart-shaped face, Bambi eyes and Amelie goodwill might lead you to expect.
| Original Score: 3/4

The film is deft, delicious work, but a very different romantic fantasy than you probably expect.

[Take] madness - mixed with inspiration from watching The Sixth Sense. Add a touch of Mulholland Drive and a bag of heart-shaped jujubees, and you'll just about have the flavor of He Loves Me.

A pretty nifty mystery about deranged love, and if nothing is truly startling, it's still smartly put together and completely entertaining.
| Original Score: B

Tautou's portrait of delusion is painted with true conviction and with the sort of precise sense of detail that will make you either recall someone you've known who's just like her or be extremely thankful you can't.
| Original Score: 3/4

Wickedly clever French psycho-thriller about romantic obsession.
Laura Kelly

Amélie sensation Audrey Tautou is reason enough to ignore anti-French sentiment and enjoy a French, er, Freedom film.
