“The movie has pace and lustre to spare, and the actors are richly invested in their characters, not hesitating to make them crabby and selfish, when need be, as well as sympathetic. The standout is Merlant, who starred in [Portrait of a Lady on Fire] and who stands on the brink of great things.” — Anthony Lane, The New Yorker.
