Entertainment Weekly
The wry filmmaker has created an urbane society of family and friends as ridiculously pretentious and hypocritical as they are cultured, accomplished, and posh.

Rolling Stone
This bonbon spiked with malice is a triumph for Jaoui, who takes witty and wounding measure of the small betrayals that leave bruises on us all.

Variety
Punchy dialogue, excellent thesping and a real feel for the universal tuning fork of great classical music make this a prime candidate for international arthouse play.
80
A tender, indignant, but also very worldly movie.

Directed by Agnès Jaoui, who made the equally delightful "The Taste of Others," this comedy of manners with a serious purpose centers on a group of loosely connected neurotics, all working in the rarefied worlds of amateur chorales.
80
A witty and acute examination of friendship, ambition and betrayal in the Parisian literary world.
75
While Jaoui's film is interesting to watch, it dawdles enough to lose its storytelling grip.
70
Village Voice
Little in a Jaoui film is particularly original, but it's all perfectly convincing.
70
The A.V. Club
The film satisfies in much the same way Allen's movie-a-year comedies used to satisfy.
60
The multitalented Jaoui and Bacri excel on every level; her direction is efficient and unobtrusive, their script dissects the nuances of corruption by celebrity with a razor-sharp scalpel, and they deliver a pair of subtly unsparing performances.
