  1. The drama's elegant structure, which takes you through a series of surprises so smoothly and logically that it might be over before you realize you've seen one of the new year's most intriguing, intelligent movies.
  2. A fable about women struggling to free themselves from that myth, and even at its most obvious, it's exhilarating.

    A breathlessly involving tale of urban indifference, rampant hypocrisy and the difference a little human decency can make, superbly played pic is a black comedy that's frequently funny but never frivolous.
  4. The picture holds us, not only through our wonderment at the mixture but through Serreau's dexterity and her casting.
  5. 75
    Never stops having its dark fun.
  6. Despite a brief, unnecessary foray into melodrama -- stands alone as compelling entertainment.
  7. 70
    Serrau effortlessly navigates the tricky transition from ruefully comic chick flick to gritty crime picture.
