The critical consensus

François Ozon is an effective enough filmmaker to send up conventions of such films even as he seems to endorse them.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 30/05/2018

Sex, lies and psychoanalysis has never been more entertaining.

****(*)Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies, 31/05/2018

It’s the way Ozon keeps the film teetering on the brink of silliness without losing faith in the pulpy appeal of the story that makes this such a blast from its first frame to its shattering final shot.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 31/05/2018

François Ozon’s disorienting erotic thriller nods to Hitchcock and Cronenberg but becomes something uniquely his own.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 03/06/2018
