    If the film is self-aware, a car chase, or any action element becomes arty. We see a bad Hollywood film with the requisite explosions on an in-flight film at the film's opening. When "demonlover" switches genre and becomes less talk-oriented, don't assume the film is being dumbed down for commercial purposes.

    A visually stunning french art-action film. Strange and obscure, but haunting and powerful. Loved the idea that theses people live in a place where reality is suspended, and they have no feelings or emotions, much like a videogame. It casts a spell you will never forget.

    Sure to turn off general viewers due to its emotional inaccessibility, multitude of narrative problems and preoccupation with a torture Web site.

    Olivier Assayas latest effort could be mistaken for a hipper-than-thou thriller. But it isn’t--it’s in fact a difficult, challenging, and troubling art film. [October 2003, p. 19]

    May be Assayas' airiest work to date, an intriguing trifle that leaves its considerable pleasures to lounge around on the surface.
