    The performances by neophite actresses Olympe Borval and Lizzie Brochere make the film special.
  2. Has a sensuous, intimate filmmaking style that overrides The Wedding Song's more precariously loaded plot parallels.
  3. A lumpy admixture of politics and carnality, but when it all comes together, it has a lingering force.
  4. A seductively fluid and tactile drama from the writer and director Karin Albou, explores love and identity through the prism of the female body and the rights of its owner.
  5. The movie's distinction, however, lies in two lovely performances, and in the passion and pain of parallel lives--both girls suffering at the hands of men, both struggling to understand the brutality of the world they must share.
