Chicago Reader
A must-see.

San Francisco Examiner
There's enough sexual manic depression to justify house calls from Dr. Laura.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Kahn manages to turn his feast of flesh, navel-gazing talk and self-destructive jealousy into a thoughtful reflection on the subject.
70
Such a rigorous exploration of sexual obsession that it proves to be a most demanding film.
70
Catches you with a creepy sucker punch.

Village Voice
The plump, Rubenesque Guillemin steals the show. Her understated simplicity is her strength -- this is one of the major movie debuts of recent years.
63
New York Post
Talky, overlong and, ultimately, just as predictable and repetitive as the maddening relationship it depicts.
63
New York Daily News
Only mildly interesting.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
It's a movie about an idiot in the grip of something common place. He starts off as a garden-variety idiot and progresses to a big idiot.
50
Christian Science Monitor
Energetic acting and directing make it a less exasperating experience than it might have been.
