    It's all about having your intelligence -- emotional, spiritual, cerebral -- respected. Garcia does that; Place Vendôme does that.

    Taut and nuanced from start to finish, with memorable, lived-in central characters and an appealingly melancholy tone, helmer/co-scripter Nicole Garcia’s third feature has what it takes.
  3. 83
    Long and slow, granted, but it's so peppered with moments of realism and nuanced craft that it continually rewards careful viewing.

    It's rare that a crime movie achieves such emotional complexity, but this one is smartly layered.
  5. Consistently absorbing as the amazing Deneuve reveals, scene by scene, new facets of a fascinating character in a mercantile war that involves equal parts greed and vanity.

    Deneuve has never been better.
  7. Heavy-handed, predictable and almost completely unbelievable.
