3 stars out of 5 -- "On typically impressive form, Isabelle Huppert plays examining magistrate Jeanne Charmant-Killman....Economically shot and with amusing cameos..."Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "The peerless Claude Chabrol marked his half-century in cinema with this characteristically acerbic swipe at bourgeois ethics, in which Isabelle Huppert excels..."Empire "Chabrol offers an elegant vignette of judicial-political chicanery, while Huppert, as brilliant lawyer Jeanne, combines two of her favourite registers, coolly commanding and caustically playful."Sight and Sound48.8977

New York Times "Smet has the sullen sensuality of a big cat.She makes Senta's instability the essence of her carnal appeal." -- Grade: B Entertainment Weekly "[A] psychological drama....[It] gnaws at you all the way....There's a delectable turn by Aurore Clement..."USA Today47.9748

"...A pitch-dark comedy of manners that builds to a tragic revelation....Chabrol remains at the height of his powers....MERCI POUR LE CHOCOLAT crackles with wit and elegance, humor and pathos..." Los Angeles Times "...Huppert has never been this cheerful, or lethal, and the movie itself is like Hitchcock's REBECCA reshot for 'House & Garden' with all the ghosts pulled out of the closet..." Entertainment Weekly "[The film] finds Chabrol in playful, malicious groove....Chabrol is probing away at the tensions, guilt and jealousies that exit in even seemingly the most well-adjusted bourgeois families."Sight and Sound47.91153

"...Chabrol shoves aside the mechanics of suspense almost entirely to engage us in a sensitive study of character. As a result, LES BONNES FEMMES remains one of his most individual -- and most satisfying -- works..." Los Angeles Times "...Chabrol captures not only the electricity of simply walking down Paris streets at night, but also the rowdiness of music halls and public swimming pools..." USA Today47.76593

"[S]leek, erotic and suspenseful....The cast is compelling..."Los Angeles Times "THE HOUSEMAID remains compelling mostly for Yun's performance...at times vaguely sinister, at others full of wisdom and quiet resolve."A.V. Club "[A] flamingly sexy soap opera whose satire on high society is sometimes as savage as Claude Chabrol's LA CEREMONIE."Hollywood Reporter "THE HOUSEMAID is a lush, chilly entertainment that's a little bit Hitchcock and a little bit Sirk."Movieline "[J]uicily watchable from start to over-the-top finish....Im has opted to subvert almost every element of that film's dramatic template."Variety "An admiring, clever remake of Kim Ki-young's legendary film of the same title from 1960, this version, directed by Im Sang-soo, is at once more explicit than the original and less kinky."New York Times "[T]here's something nicely kinky in this lusciously photographed erotic Korean thriller by Im Sang-soo..." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 4 -- "This story is told by writer-director Im Sang-soo with cool, elegant cinematography and sinuous visual movements."Chicago Sun-Times0.3788653
