    A civilized delight.
  2. All of this romantic back and forth unfolds gradually and in charming ensemble style. As the characters think about seducing each other, as they inevitably complicate their lives without being able to help themselves, the film is simultaneously seducing us.

    Though its attitudes are decidedly French, this intelligent film goes a long way toward explaining America's obsession with Martha Stewart Living, fake designer labels and TV talk show makeovers.
  4. The entire cast is marvelous and capable of conveying continents of emotion with a furtive smile or arched brow.
  5. 75
    A tad slow by American standards, but so extremely well-acted and emotionally truthful, it's right up there with "In the Mood for Love" as prime romantic fare for the Valentine's Day weekend.
  6. 75
    Nothing overly dramatic happens during the course of The Taste of Others but the characters prove to be engaging and their quite real human emotions are enough to carry it.
  7. 60
    A huge hit in France, this ensemble drama revolves around two very different social groups whose encounters with each other change several lives in surprising ways.
