Critic Reviews for Requiem for a Killer (Requiem pour une Tueuse)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Cue a lot of inscrutable double-crossing, 'Murder She Wrote'-level suspense and endless recitations of Handel's 'Messiah' - well, you have to class things up somehow.

Time Out
Top Critic

Writer-director's Jerome Le Gris' sub-Hitchcockian thriller piles up the genre clichés to the point where you assume the whole enterprise must be an Agatha Christie-style parody.

Total Film

A precocious French schoolboy's idea of sophistication, the film is as deep and as brittle as a coating of glossy nail varnish.

Observer (UK)

Ludicrous thriller that almost qualifies for so-bad-it's-good status, thanks to a nonsensical script, poor performances and dreadful direction.

Mélanie Laurent glides with L'Oréal serenity through this entirely terrible film as Lucrèce, an ice-cold assassin.

June 14, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

[A] startlingly ludicrous hit-girl thriller, in which Mélanie Laurent must go undercover as an opera singer to off a fellow soloist.
