Long and slow, granted, but it's so peppered with moments of realism and nuanced craft that it continually rewards careful viewing.

Fascinating noir, which will long be remembered for its extraordinary lead performance by Catherine Deneuve.

It's rare that a crime movie achieves such emotional complexity, but this one is smartly layered.

Overall a well-played chess match of a movie.

This is a quiet thriller and a middle-aged romance, and it's full of desperation and oozing anxiety.

A slow and knotted-up film, but one imbued with a keen sense of what motivates people beyond mere avarice.
