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.
May 29, 2003
A thriller that doesn't thrill.
April 4, 2003
A disappointment.
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.
February 28, 2003
Standing on its own, it's comme ci, comme ça, self-serious when it should be adventurous, coy when it should be revelatory.
February 27, 2003
The movie continues into an unwieldy third segment that suddenly expects us to take Angélique's condition -- diagnosed as "erotomania" -- seriously.
February 21, 2003
Very little fun, and, even at ninety minutes, is easily thirty minutes too long.

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

Exploring the flipside of Tautou's adorable pixie is an interesting idea, but this movie just isn't up to the task.

There's an acrid aftertaste to writer-director Laetitia Colombani's cunning tale of love gone wrong.
February 14, 2003
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...
February 14, 2003
It's a sugar cube laced with arsenic, a nasty little film whose mean-spiritedness is surpassed only by its mediocrity.
February 13, 2003
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.

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.
January 7, 2003
The pointlessness of this exercise is surpassed only by its rank misogyny.
