REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..packaging is slick, but a major minus among design contributions is the score, which underlines every already-obvious emotion..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
“..and instead of realist mysteries, we get leaden pathos..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..all it seems to do away with is the black-and-white cinematography and pesky subtitles of the French original, and the result is boring, which isn't to say it's particularly better or worse than its artier predecessor..”
by Rob Humanick [Slant Magazine]
