Fonteyne edges closer than most to capturing the mysterious rhythms of liaisons -- pornographique, romantique, and otherwise.

Chicago Sun-Times
It is about the desiring itself, not about what they desire. That makes it more intriguing than if we knew their secret--and sexier.

San Francisco Chronicle
The audience, too, will be sorry to see this fleeting, beautifully made French film end.

Philadelphia Inquirer
An extraordinarily perfect little film: A bittersweet drama that explores sexuality and love, and their reverberations across the landscape of human emotions.

Baltimore Sun
A passionate, heart-wrenching film that is a must-see for any romantic.

Christian Science Monitor
Baye and Lopez are excellent, as always.

New York Post
Sophisticated entertainment of the less-is-more school.

Boston Globe
A bit of a cop-out, wrapping in wistful sentimentality a failure to acknowledge a connection that is more than epidermal.

Chicago Tribune
Halfway through, it becomes clear that the filmmakers don't know how to end the film.

This short, gentle film is surprisingly involving.
