Critic Reviews for Therese and Isabell

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

There is something preposterous in the sight of two adult women (Essy Persson and Anna Gael) costumed and cast as schoolgirls. The effect is roughly as convincing as Jonathan Winters in a Cub Scout uniform.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Therese and Isahelle, an eccentric and rather dreadful film, wraps up new permissiveness in rags and tatters of old art movie.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Lays out stone-cold architecture only to warm it up with the heady rush of sensual intoxication

September 25, 2009 | Full Review…

A fairly sensitive, if somewhat exploitative, drama detailing a schoolgirl's foray into lesbianism.

January 11, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Will likely provide a few quaint sexual thrills for straight guys, but, like all pornography, it tends to drag.

June 12, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

a story with substantial grace and beauty, but not much substance
