The critical consensus

The acting is wooden, but fans of the director’s more shocking work might enjoy its gentle self-referential comedy.

Surprisingly tender, Love finds Noé finally having a little fun at his own expense.

Sex is the main star of Gaspar Noé’s tragic love-triangle drama – in all its fleshy, messy, dreamlike, 3D glory.

In focusing so obsessively on physical intimacy, Noé hasn't left himself enough room to deal with anything else.

Gone is the formal brilliance, great acting and dramatic forcefulness of Irreversible; in its place is a filmmaker indulging in a spot of cinematic onanism.

Gaspar Noé’s bid to shock us into submission with 3D sex is let down by two-dimensional performances.
