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

The sharp reversal of direction represents more of a betrayal than a mere plot twist.

Very little fun, and, even at ninety minutes, is easily thirty minutes too long.

The movie continues into an unwieldy third segment that suddenly expects us to take Angélique's condition -- diagnosed as "erotomania" -- seriously.

She's a maniacal homewrecker who'll stop at nothing to break up a happy family. And we're supposed to root for her because she has a cute haircut? I think not.
| Original Score: 2/5

A much darker, French version of He Said, She Said with several pinches of Fatal Attraction caught between its aspirations and execution.

The director keeps secrets from the audience so she can spring them later as "surprises." (But) it isn't long before any savvy filmgoer will (be) 10 steps ahead...

The notion of turning Ms. Tautou's waifish charms back on themselves to suggest a demonic witchery may be a dramatic conceit. But it never registers as more than a gimmick in a movie conceived as a sophisticated Gallic stunt.

There's an acrid aftertaste to writer-director Laetitia Colombani's cunning tale of love gone wrong.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Boston Globe
March 14, 2003
Made without the finesse or depth of character that would distinguish it from any number of American-made thrillers about homicidal spurned lovers.

A thriller that doesn't thrill.

It's a sugar cube laced with arsenic, a nasty little film whose mean-spiritedness is surpassed only by its mediocrity.
| Original Score: 1/4

The pointlessness of this exercise is surpassed only by its rank misogyny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

A movie this smug doesn't deserve to be seen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

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.
Full Review| Original Score: 2.5/4

Uncovering the dark face of a sugared-rose like Tatou is a good gimmick, but it's not enough to sustain a feature-length film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Justin Hartung

Exploring the flipside of Tautou's adorable pixie is an interesting idea, but this movie just isn't up to the task.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Standing on its own, it's comme ci, comme ça, self-serious when it should be adventurous, coy when it should be revelatory.

A disappointment.

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
