    If you're content to let dream logic take over, a lot can be gleaned from this odd, darkly funny meditation on life, death, love and revenge.
  2. Brilliantly conceived and competently executed.
  3. 75
    Rampling has a relatively small role in Lemming, but the 60-year-old star proves the high point of the suspenseful black comedy from France.
  4. Reviewed by: Lisa Nesselson

    Spooky, intellectually titillating and darkly funny picture is definitely the kind of film where the less you know going in, the better.
  5. Begins like a house afire and then fizzles out into a quasi-supernatural dead end.
  6. 63
    The film's main attractions are the Charlottes, but the price of watching their eerie psychological pas de deux is to endure muddled metaphors and goofy gadgetry.
  7. The second half of the movie squanders suspense and momentum, solving its riddles by deflating them.
