Alas, the film relies too much on its shocks and fails to make the supernatural element at all convincing.

... wears out its eerie mood with little to justify dragging it out for more than two hours.

Dominik Moll imbues the first half of his thriller with inklings of strangeness that are at once sinister and quietly comical. But there is, in the end, less to this film than meets the eye.

Even by the strictest standards of odd French psychological drama, the behavior here is particularly opaque.

It's a tale of normality invaded by pathology. But here, the danger seems less plausible, the conflict more contrived.

The theme is hidden desire, but the trip feels like a stale museum tour of the usual psychodrama tropes -- voyeurism, ghosts, sexual fantasy, dream imagery, murder -- without the goose-bumps-on-your-brain payoff.

Alas! It goes on too long, lamely brushing 'Willard' and dozens of vague look-alike and was-it-a-dream scenarios.

Dominik Moll's latest gives lemmings and women a bad name.

August 4, 2006
This spooky, quasi-sci-fi, psychological thriller is unclear about what's real and what's not -- and not in any interesting way.

May 6, 2006
A superb cast valiantly attempts to keep the contrivances of an initially intriguing plot within the bounds of credibility and are ultimately confounded by an excess of ambiguity.

The film's main attractions are the Charlottes, but the price of watching their eerie psychological pas de deux is to endure muddled metaphors and goofy gadgetry.

More disturbing than thrilling, Lemming, like Alice, overstays its welcome, but does get around to a finishing kick.

The high quality of [Moll's] actors does not relieve the story from seeming ambitiously fudge-brained.

Moll is exquisitely attuned to the way sound rubs up against silence, dark against light, and his shading of psychology into the supernatural is deliciously mischievous.
July 10, 2007
slick, funny and unsettling, slipping between psychological thriller, absurdist farce and ghost story into an unnerving dreamscape where psychosis meets metempsychosis.
July 8, 2006
Unlike Hitchcock, whose plots were models of clean lines and logical avenues, Moll is more interested in subverting everything familiar, and in leaving stones unturned.
