    Somewhat overstylized and deliberately enigmatic, The Girl won't appeal to everyone. But its ambition and beauty ultimately triumph over pretense.
  2. In her feature debut, Zeig, -- displays confidence and style aplenty.
  3. Unfortunately, the result is little more than a glossy parlor trick, a stripped-to-the-bone "Of Human Bondage" recast with two women.
  4. This pretty trifle is a movie about gorgeous women having an illicit affair -- period.
  5. Plot and character development are scarce; the film is more an abstraction than an absorption.
  6. 40
    Agathe de la Boulaye, as The Painter, gives off an appealing air of good-natured amusement, which is appropriate given her surroundings.
  7. 10
    Has the dreary one-track banality of a feature-length version of an episode of "Red Shoe Diaries," Showtime's series for people who like soft core but are too lazy to leave the house.
