  1. At age 37, she's (Bonnaire) developed into a consummate film actress and a unique star whose enigmatic persona has never had a more exhilarating showcase.
  2. Mr. Luchini gives one of the best performances of the year, in one of the best movies of the year.
  3. Such a triumph of simplicity, subtlety and tact--and of the eroticism in words, looks and glances--that the actors ravish us with sheer talent and intelligence.

    Leconte, as always, means to explore the gray areas between sexual espionage and love, and there remains something powerful about the fantasy of being listened to, without judgment.

    There's a thin line between the subtle and the dramatically inert, and Intimate Strangers pitches a tent on it.
  7. Reviewed by: David Ng

    A bland chamber drama for those who like their French cinema tame, talky, and just a little titillating.
